The Board of County Commissioners has the ability to approve boundary line adjustments, community facility lot splits, or to recognize existing parcels as building lots provided they meet the characteristics and follow the process described in the Boulder County Land Use Code. They are called “Subdivisions Exemptions” because these limited, specific recognitions are exempt from the typical subdivision process.
Subdivision Exemptions typically include boundary line adjustments, community facility lot splits, lot recognitions and divisions within a townsite, and formerly incorporated towns. The Board of County Commissioners will hold a public hearing for a final decision. Prior to the hearing, the application will be referred out for review by various County Departments, public agencies (as necessary), and adjacent property owners. The Subdivision Exemption process includes a 15-day referral period and at least a 14-day public notice prior to the hearing date. Hearing dates are usually scheduled approximately six to eight weeks from the date of the application submittal (based on the Board’s availability and completeness of the application).
