Council woman Boigon, a Denver mayoral candidate, has proposed 9 Amendments to the Brown/Nevitt ordinance. They are horrible and would have a devastating effect on the industry.
Her proposals would cap all OPCOs at 10,000 square feet. Her proposals would prohibit MMCs, OPCOs, and IPMs, from being within 1,000 feet of any park, residential zoned district, school, college campus, senior services facility, or alcohol and drug treatment facility.
There is a very limited "grandfather" provision, but even that ends after 2 years.
This is proposed to go in effect July 1, 2011.
Please get in touch with your local Denver council person and let them know, politely, how you feel.

Next meeting is January 31, 2 pm Denver City and County Building
