Long-Range Planning

Long-Range Planning is currently working on updates to the County's zoning regulations, which can be found in Chapter 23 of the Weld County Code.  Staff has provided a staff report and a section-by-section summary of the proposed code changes.  A three-page table summarizing the changes to permitted uses for each zone district and the process for approval is also provided for your information.  The key to abbreviations is at the bottom of each page.  

Weld County's zoning regulations only apply in the unincorporated portion of the County (outside of incorporated cities and towns).  To check the zoning of your property, please see the Zoning Map.

The Planning Commission recommended approval of the changes at its meeting on March 19, 2019. 

The tentative schedule for adoption of the proposed code changes is as follows:
Board of County Commissioners - 1st Reading of Ordinance 2019-02:  Monday, April 29, 2019 at 9:00 am.  Please see Agendas for the 2019 BOCC meetings.

Board of County Commissioners:  2nd Reading of Ordinance 2019-02:  Monday, June 10, 2019 at 9:00 am

Board of County Commissioners:  Final Reading of Ordinance 2019-02:  Wednesday, July 10, 2019 at 9:00 am

The meetings listed above are open to the public.  Again, this schedule is tentative and subject to change.

If you would like to submit written comments on the zoning code updates, please email Jim Flesher, Long-Range Planner,  If you want to be sure the County Commissioners receive your email as well, please copy Esther Gesick, Clerk to the Board at  You may also mail comments to Jim Flesher at 1555 North 17th Avenue, Greeley, Colorado, 80631 and Esther Gesick at 1150 O Street, Greeley, Colorado, 80631.
