Land Development Approvals
Current Planning Section
The Current Planning Section, working closely with the Engineering Services Division, processes all applications for land use approvals, including subdivisions of land, rezoning of property, site plan approvals, use by special review applications and other related processes. Applications for mobile-communications facilities, major transmission lines and pipelines, and oil and gas facilities are also managed by the Current Planning staff. Zoning and Subdivision Regulations for land use and development within the unincorporated county are included in the county’s Land Development Code and 1041 Regulations.

Need a Quick Answer?
During business hours (M-F, 8 - 4:30), talk to someone to get the information you need quickly. Call 720-874-6650 and ask for:
  • Planner on Call for questions about current land development activity or processes for land development approvals.
  • Zoning on Call to find the zoning on properties, check allowable land uses, report a property concern or ask about fence or sign permits. 
  • Use Report, Request or Question to send an email to Planning or Zoning. Please select Planning or Zoning from drop down menu. 

Find My Property
ArapaMap and Property Information tools may also help you find the information you need and whether a property is located within the unincorporated county. 

Additional Information

Prospective applicants are encouraged to contact the Planning Division or Records office of Public Works and Development to research a property of interest. Informal meetings with staff may be scheduled at any time, and a formal pre-submittal meeting is required prior to making most land use applications.

Individuals buying property are encouraged to check the subdivision history of land to ensure that the property has been legally created as a parcel meeting the minimum land area requirements of the zoning district to ensure eligibility for obtaining a building permit for a home or other use.
