Land Use Code

The Land Use Code is a set of regulations that guide how property is used and developed in Larimer County. The purpose of the Land Use Code is to protect landowner rights while also looking out for overall community interests. The County has had land use and zoning regulations since 1963. The online version of the Land Use Code is updated every 3 months. Recently adopted amendments may not be included. Please go to the Land Use Code Approved Amendments page to check for recent amendments.

The Land Use Code applies to the development and use of land in unincorporated Larimer County, except for land in the Estes Valley plan area. However, sections 4.2.2, 5.8, 5.11, 7.0 and 9.0 do apply to land in the Estes Valley Area.
