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 and Standards project. 

You need to be signed in to take this survey.
