City of Grand Junction Zoning and Development Code Module 1 Open for Public Input

Zoning Code - Module 1 Available

The City of Grand Junction is updating its Zoning and Development Code and the Module 1 draft (PDF) is now available for public review and input.

Drafting of the Zoning and Development Code will be completed in three modules over the next six months and each module will be posted in order for the public to review and comment. Community input will be used to draft the final code. The city will also be holding online public discussions on the Code Assessment and more information will be available on the City's website. Community involvement is essential to this project and there will be many opportunities to provide ideas and feedback about the project, both in-person and virtually. Each phase of the project will include draft documents that will be shared with the community for input and comment.

This project is an important next step in the comprehensive planning process, focused on making sure that the rules that govern land development (zoning and subdivision regulations) support the vision, goals, and strategies that were identified by the community as part of the One Grand Junction Comprehensive Plan, which the city adopted in 2021.

The goals of the Zoning and Development Code update project include:

  • Updating the city’s regulations to better reflect the goals and policies described in the 2020 One Grand Junction Comprehensive Plan, especially those key principles related to responsible and managed growth and strong neighborhoods and housing choices.
  • Achieving a higher level of efficiency, consistency, and simplicity.
  • Identifying constraints and opportunities for affordable and attainable housing, consistent with those identified in the city’s recently adopted Housing Strategies.

Information about the project and upcoming meetings are updated regularly on the city website. To receive notifications about this project, sign up with NotifyMe. Questions or comments can be emailed to the Community Development Department at ZoningCodeUpdate@gjcity.org
