Help Us Update the Comprehensive Plan
In 2017, Arapahoe County Planning Staff will complete a full review of the policies, goals, and strategies of the 2001 Comprehensive Plan (as most recently amended). A public review of the draft plan will be available sometime this year. Citizen input and feedback on the draft plan is welcomed and encouraged. Please stay tuned for details. A link to the draft will be provided on this page as soon as it's available, but we are anticipating publishing this information in June-July, 2017.
