Land Use Table and Standards

Consultation has concluded

In 2018 the Planning Board identified Use Tables, and associated code revisions, as a priority item for Land Use Code updates in 2018. The Use Table displays the allowed land uses in the various zoning districts of the city, and is found within Chapter 6 of the Land Use Code (Title 9 of the Boulder Revised Code, 1981). The preliminary goals of the project include:

  • Simplify the Use Table and streamline the regulations where possible, making the Use Standards & Table more understandable and legible.
  • Create more predictability and certainty in Chapter 9-6 Use Standards of the Land Use Code .
  • Align the Use Table and permitted uses with the Boulder Valley Comprehensive Plan goals, policies and land use designations.
  • Identify any community-desired land use gaps in the Use Standards &Table, and better enable the desired land uses in the identified neighborhoods as well as in commercial and industrial districts.

The Planning Board has since appointed a subcommittee comprised of three Planning Board members, David Ensign (subcommittee Chair), Bryan Bowen, and Crystal Gray, who will guide the project and make recommendations on potential changes to the Use Table and associated standards of the Land Use Code.

    Use Table and Standards Survey

    The city is exploring adjustments to the zoning regulations to bring land uses (e.g., groceries, coffee shops, pharmacies, duplexes, live/work, gas stations etc.) more in alignment with the goals of the Boulder Valley Comprehensive Plan. As part of this, the city is looking for feedback about uses from people that live, work and visit Boulder. 

    For more information please see the "Use Table & Standards handout" in the document library, as well as the planning webpage www.bouldercolorado.gov/plan-develop/use-table-and-standards-review.

    Please take this survey to share your feedback on possible code changes related to the Land Use Table
