2023 Comprehensive Plan and Land Development Code Update

Shaping Community Character

The Town was awarded a grant through the Colorado Department of Local Affairs in 2022 to update the Town’s comprehensive plan and land use regulations. The project kicked off in mid-2022 with the comprehensive plan phase of the project. The updates to the land development regulations is anticipated to kick off in June 2023 with all project tasks anticipated to be completed by the end of 2023.

The Town has partnered with Community Planning Strategies (CPS) to complete these projects and a project website has been set up where additional information can be found, and updates will be posted. Please visit the project website.


On January 21, 2021, the Town adopted a moratorium on new development permits, approvals, and requests. The only exception to this is for the construction of single-family dwelling units or accessory structures, provided there are no variances or utility extensions, or expansions required. As development pressures increased through 2020, the moratorium was deemed necessary to give the Town time to evaluate available utility capacities and impacts of the increased development requests. Enacting the moratorium and conducting further analysis will ensure staff and elected officials are provided the tools necessary to make sound planning and public infrastructure decisions for the future of the Town.
