Boulder County Comprehensive Plan

Due to COVID-19, the Community Planning & Permitting Department is conducting business and providing services virtually. Our physical office in Boulder is currently CLOSED to the public.

Boulder County Comprehensive Plan (BCCP)

BCCP Comprehensive Plan cover imageThe Boulder County Comprehensive Plan (BCCP) was developed to respond to the widely accepted principle that the myriad of future land use decisions affecting the county’s lands should be made in a coordinated and responsible manner.

The Boulder County Comprehensive Plan philosophy is that:

  • Growth should be channeled to municipalities.
  • Agricultural lands should be protected.
  • Preservation of our environmental and natural resources should be a high priority in making land use decisions.

Please see the Boulder County Comprehensive Plan Update for information on the current update review.

The Community Planning & Permitting Department also has printed copies of the Boulder County Comprehensive Plan available for purchase at the Community Planning & Permitting Department.

Boulder County Comprehensive Plan (Updated July 15, 2020)

Editors note: The Boulder County Comprehensive Plan document was redesigned in 2021. BCCP elements are updated on a rolling basis, one element at a time. For several years, new and updated elements of the BCCP have been posted separately rather than being integrated into a single document. The new version of the plan assembles all currently approved components into a single document.
