Summary

Effective January 1, 2024, the bill requires each newly constructed
public building and each public building in which restroom renovations
are estimated to cost $10,000 or more that is wholly or partly owned by
the state, a county, or a local municipality to:

  • Provide a non-gendered restroom facility or a multi-stall
non-gendered facility on each floor where restrooms are
available;

  • Ensure that all single-stall restrooms are not designated for
exclusive use by any specific gender;
  • Allow for the use of multi-stall restrooms by any gender if
certain facility features are met under the 2021
International Plumbing Code; and

  • Provide at least one safe, sanitary, and convenient baby
diaper changing station that is accessible to the public on
each floor where there is a public restroom in each
gender-specific restroom, non-gendered multi-stall
restroom, and non-gendered single-stall restroom.
The bill also requires each newly constructed public building and
each public building in which restroom renovations are estimated to cost
$10,000 or more that is wholly or partly owned by the state, a county, or
a local municipality to include signage indicating the presence of a baby
diaper changing station with a pictogram that is void of gender in all
restrooms with baby diaper changing stations, in all non-gendered
restrooms, and in all single-stalled restrooms.
The bill also requires each newly constructed public building and
each public building in which restroom renovations are estimated to cost
$10,000 or more that is wholly or partly owned by the state, a county, or
a local municipalitiy to indicate in the central building directory, if such
a directory exists, the location of any baby diaper changing station and of
any non-gendered restroom.
The bill exempts the requirements of including a baby diaper
changing station in any restroom and any construction necessary to
comply with providing an accessible non-gendered restroom if the
requirement would result in failure to comply with applicable building
standards governing the right of access for individuals with disabilities.
The bill clarifies that an employee with a designated workplace in
a public building may undertake the complaint process for alleged
discriminatory or unfair practices including the failure to comply with
providing the required amenities to all genders, as required, with the
Colorado civil rights division charged with the enforcement of the
Colorado anti-discrimination act.
