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.

15-Minute Neighborhoods

over 1 year

“15-minute neighborhoods” are neighborhoods where daily goods, services and transit are within a 15-minute walk (about a 1/4 mile) of where people live or work. The 15-minute neighborhood is a key concept found within the Boulder Valley Comprehensive Plan.

Place a pin on the map where you would like to see the corresponding uses below. For example, if you would like to see small-scale groceries, coffee shops, or pharmacies on a corner near where you live, you would place a Retail Pin at your location of choice on the map. Then feel free to leave an associated comment with a more detailed description of the use and/or the location.
