Comprehensive Plan and SubArea Plans
Significant Updates
The Arapahoe County Comprehensive Plan provides guidance for land use decisions for the unincorporated areas of the county. Since its adoption in 2001, the most significant updates have been:
  • The adoption of a series of community-specific SubArea Plans between 2001 and 2007
  • In 2012, the expansion of the Planning Reserve Area within the I-70 Corridor and identification of tiers for anticipated development and preservation of rural character and agricultural uses for the eastern county
  • In 2014, the addition of the plan amendment process as part of Chapter V 

I-70 Corridor Economic Assessment
This most recent work grew out of a cooperative I-70 Corridor Economic Assessment, a study conducted jointly with the I-70 Corridor Regional Economic Advancement Partnership (REAP), Adams County and the communities and towns along the I-70 Corridor.

Work to further identify appropriate levels of development and criteria for timing and degree of development is continuing.

Help Us Update the Comprehensive Plan
In 2015 - 2016, county planning staff will continue a more comprehensive review of the policies, goals and strategies of the 2001 Comprehensive Plan. Your input is welcomed and encouraged.

Current updates:
  • Amended map of the Comprehensive Plan.
  • Amended Chapter V of the Comprehensive Plan to include the plan amendment process.
  • Four Square Mile Sub-Area Plan Amendment - three property owners submitted a request to amend a portion of the Sub-Area Plan. For more information, please visit our Major Projects web page.

The reports in this link provide information about the County and several subareas within the County. The information in the reports comes from a variety of sources, including the US Census, American Community Survey, Colorado State Demography Office, Colorado Department of Labor and Employment, and the US Department of Agriculture. While the data uses the most current information available at the time the reports were prepared, the information will need to be revised and updated to reflect the most recent demographic information available.
