Navigating Complex Land Use And Development Regulations
Property ownership alone does not grant you the ability to do whatever you like with your land. A multitude of legal regulations set the parameters for how land can be used, divided and developed.
State law imposes limitations such as Senate Bill 35, which restricts how certain parcels of land can be subdivided. Additionally, counties and cities across Colorado have their own zoning restrictions and land use plans. Various local government authorities are responsible for making important decisions that can affect the property rights of both individual and business landowners.
