WELD COUNTY NOTICE – PROPOSED ZONING CHANGES:
Weld County, Colorado, is considering major changes to its subdivision processes, which include changes to Chapter 23 (Zoning), Chapter 24 (Subdivisions), and Chapter 27 (Planned Unit Developments).
The following changes are proposed:
- ORD2023-17 (Repealing and Reenacting with Amendments Chapter 23 (Zoning) and Chapter 24 (Subdivisions)) . Ordinance 2023-17 was withdrawn from the November 7th Planning Commission Agenda for further changes to the draft Ordinance.
- ORD2023-18 (Repealing and Reenacting with Amendments Chapter 27 (Planned Unit Developments)). If adopted, Ordinance 2023-18 will rewrite Chapter 27 and state that no new PUDs will be allowed.
Planning Commission Voted Unanimously to Recommend Denial
At the November 7th Planning Commission hearing, the Planning Commission voted unanimously to recommend of denial of ORD2023-18 to the Board of County Commissioners, with the comment that the Planning Commission would like to see additional Board Work Sessions and stakeholder meetings.
AGPROfessionals were among the several requesting the code changes be referred back to stakeholder’s meetings. Our concern is going too fast, and Weld County citizens and stakeholders have not been given adequate time to be made aware of code changes or have the opportunity to understand the impact to their property rights or to provide their feedback.
Impacted Rural and Agricultural Property Owners Should Attend the Next Meeting on December 4th
Rural and agricultural property owners who may be interested in learning more and protecting their property rights should plan to attend the December 4th Board of County Commissioners hearing.
The Board of County Commissioners hearing for the 1st reading of ORD2023-18 is scheduled for December 4th at 9:00 am.
We will provide updates and information about upcoming stakeholder meetings if they are scheduled.
