Amendments to the Land Use Code

Amendments to the Land Use Code

The Boulder County Land Use Code is an important tool that plays a large role in determining how unincorporated Boulder County will look in the future. Public input is critical to the Land Use Code success.

It is a dynamic document that must adjust to changes in practices, site conditions and/or to deal with unintended consequences. The Land Use Code may be amended through initiation of the Planning Commission or the Boulder County Commissioners. The amendment process provides procedures consistent with applicable State requirements by which changes may be made to the text of the Code and to the Official Zoning Map. This procedure shall apply to all proposals to change the text of the Code or to revise a zoning district classification or zoning district boundary line shown on the Official Zoning Map.

The Board or County Commissioners need the public’s input in making the Land Use Code a better document that reflects community values, is administered as fairly as possible, can be clearly understood, and effectively implements the basic vision of the Boulder County Comprehensive Plan.

To participate in revising the Land Use Code, subscribe to the Land Use Code Notification email list to keep up-to-date on proposed amendments, meetings, decisions, and other pertinent information.
