The Estes Valley Development Code (EVDC) is a unified code establishing both zoning and subdivision regulations for the Estes Valley. The code was jointly adopted by the Larimer County Board of County Commissioners and the Estes Park Town Board of Trustees on November 3, 1999 and became effective February 1, 2000.

What is the process for adopting revisions to the Development Code?
Proposed revisions to the Estes Valley Development Code are considered and adopted through a public hearing process that is held before the respective elected boards, the Estes Park Town Board of Trustees and the Larimer County Board of County Commissioners, with each acting independently.
Proposed changes are first heard by the Estes Valley Planning Commission. If the Planning Commission recommends approval of the revisions, they are presented to the Estes Park Town Board of Trustees at the following two monthly Town Board meetings. If the Town Board approves the changes, they are presented to the Larimer County Board of County Commissioners at their meeting a month later.
If the revisions are approved by both the Town Board and Larimer County Commissioners, they are adopted into the Estes Valley Development Code.
