New Master Plan Underway - Get Involved!  

We have entered the final stages of the RFP process and are excited to begin working with a carefully selected contractor to complete the County's updated Master Plan. Stay tuned and visit Visit the Master Plan website for updates on how to be involved!

In the meantime, we invite you to visit and explore the Routt County Land Use Story Map. The story map contains interactive maps, charts and graphs that illustrate many of the factors that drive land use and development in Routt County. It is an innovative and informative tool that can be used to investigate our options for future growth. The story map is best viewed on a desktop or laptop computer; it is not optimized for mobile devices.
