Proposed Code Amendments

Billboards (LDC19-002)

Arapahoe County is pursuing an update to the Land Development Code to include updated regulations on Billboards. The current regulations do not clearly provide definitions or outline the process by which applications are reviewed and approved. The County conducted a public survey regarding this matter in the month of July. Staff are compiling results and will present more information to the Board of County Commissioners in early September for guidance on next steps. 


Accessory Setback Changes in A-1 and RR-A Zone Districts (LDC20-001)

Current regulations require accessory buildings to be behind the front building line of the principal structure in the A-1 (Agricultural-1) and RR-A (Rural Residential-A) zone districts. The proposed change would be a 100-foot required front setback for accessory buildings regardless of where the principal structure is located. 

This update to the Land Development Code will provide property owners more flexibility for building structures that support agricultural and residential needs, while addressing the need for setbacks. 

The County conducted a public survey regarding this matter in the month of July. Staff are compiling results. Please check back for more information.
