Land Use Code Update Phase 1#
The City’s Land Use Code (LUC) regulates zoning, building design, and lots more. It was written in 1997 and has been updated regularly to address specific code issues, but it hasn’t really been looked at comprehensively. Fort Collins and our community priorities have grown and changed a LOT since 1997. This year, we are beginning updates to the LUC to make sure it supports our adopted goals and policies in City Plan and the Housing Strategic Plan.
