Denver businesses have until April 30 to comply with code – The Denver Post

DENVER – Denver business owners have until the end of the month to make sure they’re complying with changes to the city’s building code in regard to gendered language on restroom signs.

The Denver City Council voted in December 2016 to amend the code to state that any single-occupant restroom – a restroom with a single stall or toilet or a stall and urinal that’s intended for use by one person at a time – must have a sign stating that it’s open for use by anyone regardless of gender.

Existing businesses have until April 30 to meet that requirement. The change also applies to “family” or assisted-use restrooms.
