In response to unique conditions stemming from both the Covid-19 public health emergency and the Cameron Peak fire,  the Board of County Commissioners have adopted, and the Planning division has implemented, certain temporary and emergency approval processes.  The purpose of these approvals are to provide flexible, streamlined procedures to address the direct impacts of these dual community disasters.   

Specific processes are linked below, and this page will be updated as additional directives are adopted.
