The LUC is neither stone tablets nor golden plates that can be broken or lost. It is not even a bound document; it’s more like a loose-leaf notebook whose pages can be culled and replaced as needed.
The county’s code was adopted by the Grand County Council in April 2008, following careful re-codification, and is under constant review and revision. From 2009 to present, the code was amended 13 times by the passage of ordinances that regarded such concerns as steep slopes, construction standards, industrial use standards, setbacks in the highway commercial zone, accessory dwellings, recycling centers and field research/environmental education centers.
All ordinances go through rigorous and transparent procedures by the Grand County Planning Commission and the county council and involve public input.
Far from being broken, the land use code is alive and well. It is a vital adjunct to the Grand County General Plan.
