Docket DC-17-0002: Amendments to the Boulder County Land Use Code for Parking-related Uses and Regulations

Review draft Land Use Code Text amendments regarding a Multimodal Parking Facility use definition and an accessory Parking use definition

On August 22, 2017, the Board of County Commissioners authorized Land Use staff to pursue text amendments to the Boulder County Land Use Code specific to parking-related uses and regulations.

Why: Staff identified a need for a use definition that allows for offsite parking in areas where onsite parking is constrained and where the allowance of offsite parking facilities would help maintain the character and function of the area.

The initial referral draft of the proposed regulations is available to garner feedback and make necessary changes to the draft before public hearings are scheduled. In this draft, staff proposes to replace the existing Park and Ride use with an expanded definition of a Multimodal Parking Facility. Staff also proposes removing provisions for Parking in Article 4-500 and replacing it with an accessory Parking use in Article 5-516.

View the referral draft of the proposed regulations as of September 25, 2017.

Public comments will be taken at both hearings. Confirmation of hearing dates and times will be published on the Docket DC-17-0002 webpage and in local newspapers.

The Land Use staff and County Commissioners value comments from individuals and referral agencies. Please send a letter or email with your comment by October 18, 2017 using the Ask a Planner form. All comments will be made part of the public record.
