Planning and Zoning

The Town of Estes Park and Larimer County are currently collaborating to provision new, separate Town and County planning services to accommodate the expiration of the Estes Valley Planning Area Intergovernmental Agreement on March 31, 2020. A list of frequently asked questions focuses on the changes within the Town boundaries, which take effect April 1, 2020.

Currently, the Planning and Zoning Division coordinates development of the Estes Valley by administering and enforcing the Estes Valley Development Code and implementing the Estes Valley Comprehensive Plan

Our core services include:

Land Use Consultations: What is zoning and how does it impact your property? We look forward to assisting you with questions or concerns about our adopted codes and how they apply to your property or business. Walk-ins are welcomed, but appointments are preferred to ensure that a staff member is available.

Development Review: We coordinate the review of development applications such as subdivisions, rezonings, variance and development plans.

Mapping: The Planning and Zoning Division maintains numerous maps for the Estes Valley.
