Land Use Code

Citizen Comments on the Land Use Code

The Land Use Code is a living document that changes over time to respond to new information and the needs of the community. Citizens are encouraged to provide comments or suggestions. The best way to affect changes in the Land Use Code is to:

  Attend the Board of County Commissioner's Administrative Matters Meeting

9 a.m., Tuesdays
Commissioners' Conference Rm
200 West Oak Street, 2nd Floor
Fort Collins, Colorado

  • Prepare a written statement about your proposed change or addition to the Code.
  • Please call the Commissioners' Office (970)498-7010 to let them know that you plan on attending the meeting and the topic you want to talk about. The Board will often ask that Planning staff attend the meeting to help with the discussion.



After a citizen submits a suggestion, Planning staff will be assigned to research the topic and the possible change to the Code. Staff will prepare a draft County response and present it to the Board as soon as possible or as staff resources allow. The Board will give staff direction on how to proceed.

Staff will work with County Commissioners and the Planning Commission as needed to draft a final response to the suggestion and determine what the next steps will be. Citizens who submit suggestions are asked to keep in touch with Planning staff to find out when the final response will be discussed with the Commissioners. Planning staff will prepare and present a final response to the suggestion at a future Administrative Matters meeting.

Further comments on these suggestions are not taken by the County Commissioners until such time as an official code amendment is proposed. If an amendment is proposed, standard procedures for public hearings will be followed that allow for public comment on a specific amendment.


If you would like more specific information or if you have a question that's not answered here, please contact the Larimer County Planning Department at (970) 498-7679 or send us email.
