Land Use Companion and Administrative Review Team (ART)


Have an idea for the development of your property?  What about a business idea?  The Land Use Companion was created by staff as a tool to identify the important factors impacting your project. An ART Review allows an applicant to sit down with most, if not all, agencies that may have a comment on an application at the same time. The Land Use Companion can be accessed by clicking here.  Get in touch with the Planner of the Day by calling (970) 879-2704 or by email with questions or to schedule a review.
