Land Use Code

Proposed Amendments to the Land Use Code

The Land Use Code is a living document that requires periodic housekeeping amendments to make it function properly. Housekeeping amendments are those changes to the code that correct an omission or error in the Code. These amendments are considered to be minor and it's not anticipated that these changes greatly affect the intent or purpose of the Code. Other amendments may be proposed to add land uses that aren't currently covered in the Code or to modify existing uses or requirements.

Two review criteria are considered when amending the Land Use Code:

  1. The proposed changes are consistent with the Master Plan and the intent and purpose of the Land Use Code; and
  2. The proposed changes are necessary to correct an omission or error in the Land Use Code.

Amendments Under Consideration

  1. Amendment to the Loveland Growth Management Area Boundary (file #17-CODE0214):
    An Amendment to the Loveland Growth Management Area (GMA) boundary is to be heard by the Larimer County Planning Commission on Wednesday, July 19, 2017 at 6:30 pm and the Board of County Commissioners on Monday, August 28, 2017 at 6:30 pm. Both hearings will be held at the Larimer County Courthouse Offices, 1st Floor Hearing Room, 200 W. Oak, Fort Collins.

    The amendment is to adopt an expanded GMA Overlay Zone District boundary for the City of Loveland. Properties within the newly adopted boundary will be rezoned to include both the existing County Zoning and the GMA Overlay Zone District, found in Section 4.2.1 of the Larimer County Land Use Code.

There may be some lag time between a proposed amendment, adoption of the amendment by the Board of County Commissioners, and the inclusion of the amendments into the on-line version of the Land Use Code. Approved amendments are incorporated into the on-line version of the Code four times per year.
