Mesa County's Land Development Code is undergoing an update

Mesa County is looking for input on much-needed updates to the Land Development Code (LDC) to improve services and processing time to move projects through our system more efficiently. Updates are intended to modernize, condense and streamline process such as:

      • Major vs. Minor subdivisions
      • Site Plans
      • Urban vs. Rural
      • Landscaping Requirements
      • Property Line Adjustments
      • Density by Design Toolbox

“The LDC document was designed to assist in implementing the county’s vision of balancing private property rights with the needs of the community,” Chair of the Board of County Commissioners Rose Pugliese said. “We want to adopt comprehensive changes to the LDC with feedback from the community.”

Join us in reviewing the proposed amendments and offer your suggestions or concerns.
