Land Use Survey

2010 Land Use Survey


The Department of Local Affairs, in conjunction with the Colorado Municipal League, Colorado Counties, Inc., American Planning Association Colorado Chapter, and Colorado State University Cooperative Extension recently released the results of the 2010 Land Use Survey.


The land use survey provides a snapshot of the current planning practices of Colorado local governments. Similar surveys were conducted in 1983, 1992 and 2004 and efforts were made to keep the survey questions consistent from one survey to the next to aid in a longitudinal analysis. A few new questions were added to reflect current issues.
