Boulder County Comprehensive Plan Update

Outreach efforts in 2011 introduced the existing Boulder County Comprehensive Plan (BCCP) to residents, explored how the Comprehensive Plan has shaped the county, and provided reasons for initiating a review and modernization of the plan. At these meetings staff introduced draft language on the Guiding Principles that provided direction for the Comprehensive Plan with the orientation toward sustainability. The Guiding Principles were approved by the Planning Commission on January 18, 2012. The ongoing next steps for the Comprehensive Plan update are to review the elements within the Plan. Gaining public input into the BCCP update effort is critical to planning for the future of Boulder County.

The Planning Commission authorized the Land Use Department to proceed with an update to the Boulder County Comprehensive Plan at its September 16, 2009 meeting. Please send your comments via the Ask a Planner webform.
