What's the Latest? 

Overview

The City of Longmont is updating the Land Development Code to reflect the community's vision of future growth, as described in the recently adopted Envision Longmont Multimodal and Comprehensive Plan. The full overview may be viewed on our welcome page.

Zoning Districts and Use Regulations

A public working draft of the zoning districts and use regulations is now available for review and comment. Also included is a transmittal memo that provides an overview of the content included in the zoning districts and use regulations chapters.

The Planning & Zoning Commission will discuss the draft documents at public meetings scheduled for September 27 and October 25.

A short survey has been posted for community input on several topics related to zoning districts and use regulations. Please use the following survey link to share your thoughts: Zoning District and Uses Survey

Short Term Rentals & Temporary Businesses

The Planning & Zoning Commission discussed temporary businesses and short-term rentals in February and April.

The Commission provided recommendations on short term rentals in April, but deferred further discussion of temporary businesses to a later date when the use regulations are reviewed.

 In June, City Council reviewed the Commission's recommendations on short term rentals. Council directed staff to proceed with drafting amendments to the Land Development Code and Building Code to allow short term rentals. Council also recommended additional community engagement on this topic – a community survey was completed in July-August.

Results of the survey and community engagement will be presented to Council along with the draft code amendments. Tentative dates are November 14 and 28.

Affordable Housing

City Council approved O-2017-19, the updated and consolidated Affordable Housing codes on April 11, 2017.
