The Estes Valley Planning Advisory Committee is a committee of Estes Valley area residents, property owners, and business owners (as designated by the Planning Area in the Land Use Code) appointed by the Larimer County Board of Commissioners, for the purpose of providing an organized forum that is open for public participation and is dedicated to preserving and enhancing the identity and quality of the Estes Valley area. In support of this purpose, the Committee conducts monthly meetings only as necessary to:

  • solicit community involvement, opinion, and active participation;
  • communicate to the Board of County Commissioners and County Planning Commission concerns, issues or recommendations regarding development review applications (i.e., more complex reviews including Special Reviews, Rezonings, Special Exceptions, Minor Special Reviews, Public Site Plan Reviews, and subdivisions that create one (1) or more new lots) received by the County for land within the unincorporated area of the Estes Valley area that will involve public hearings;
  • advise the Board of County Commissioners on other issues of community concern and interest;
  • facilitate communication between Estes Valley community members and Larimer County government; and
  • develop, refine and promote a vision of the future for the Estes Valley area and provide input to an update to the comprehensive plan for the area whether jointly prepared with the Town of Estes Park or separately prepared for the County’s unincorporated area.
