Land Use Intergovernmental Agreements (IGAs)

Land Use Intergovernmental Agreements (IGAs)

Intergovernmental Agreements make up comprehensive planning agreements that are implemented after differing parties within Boulder County find common ground regarding management issues in transportation, affordable housing, open space acquisitions, and the definition of urban/rural growth boundaries.

The county currently has IGAs in force with each of the county’s municipalities. There are provisions in each, that provide for amendments to the IGAs during the course of their effective dates. Termination dates for IGAs are set by the signatory parties and vary from one IGA to the next.

Beginning in 2010, the County Commissioners began asking the Planning Commission – as an advisory body and keeper of the Comprehensive Plan – to provide input and comment on proposed amendments to existing IGAs, renewal of IGAs that are reaching the end of their effective dates, and on new IGAs where they may be under development in Boulder County.
