What is Zoning?#

Example of zoning

Zoning in Fort Collins is guided by City Plan, the City’s comprehensive plan (originally adopted on March 27, 1997 and updated every five years). From City Plan, the Fort Collins Land Use Code was created to establish development regulations. The regulations pertain to such things as the establishment of different zone districts, permitted uses in the various districts, signs, fences, home occupations, parking, landscaping, and general site layout and design.
