History

On Jan. 18, 2018, the Board of County commissioners authorized staff to proceed with text amendments to the Boulder County Land Use Code related to Subdivision Exemptions, Exemption Plats, and Building Lot Determinations in Docket DC-18-0001. Staff updated Article 9 of the Code to revise the Subdivision Exemption and Exemption Plat Criteria and process. The changes include an administrative process for boundary line adjustments and lot mergers that do not increase density and the revision of the building lot definition in Article 18. The intent of the code amendments was to increase the efficiency of related Land Use Department processes and clarify the intent of Subdivision Exemptions, Exemption Plats, and Building Lot determinations.

Summary of Proposed Text Amendments

The DC-18-0001 amendments to the Land Use Code include the following:

  • Clarifications to the building lot definition and building lot determination process, and relocating process-related elements into Article 9
  • An administrative process for minor Subdivision Exemptions and Exemption Plats
  • Revised Subdivision Exemption and Exemption Plat criteria that more adequately address land use impacts similar to the Site Plan Review and Special Review standards
  • Revised Subdivision Exemption definition to address properties with multiple interests where the parcel or lot is not divided.
  • Relevant changes to Articles 1-300, 3, 17-300, and 18.
