Land Use & Development

Planning in Alamosa County is guided by the County Master Plan and the Land Use and Development Code (LUDC) adopted in 2009.

  • These guidelines promote public safety and stabilize property values while balancing the need for economic development with our agricultural heritage.
  • Residential uses are allowed in most zoned districts of the county with the exception of Commercial (C) and Industrial (I).
  • Most types of businesses require zoning review, please call the Land Use office to discuss the type of business and location.
Land Use Applications
These are the most common types of applications.
  • Each process requires the same application but the submittal requirements are different for each.
  • The 2017 Schedule gives the submittal deadlines for 2017 hearing dates.
