The Planning Division of the Town of Parker's Community Development Department and project consultant Clarion Associates continue to work on a comprehensive update of the Town's Land Development Ordinance (LDO).
The LDO, Title 13 of the Parker Municipal Code, governs land use and development within our community. It was originally adopted at the time of the Town’s incorporation in 1981 from Douglas County zoning, and while it has been updated significantly over the years, it is in need of a comprehensive update.
The current modernization project began in late 2018 and is slated for completion in early 2024. When complete, the update will facilitate a more transparent, modern and efficient approach to how the Town manages future growth and development by better aligning the LDO with the vision, goals and policies of the Parker 2035 Master Plan and other adopted planning documents. Other benefits will include adoption of best practices in zoning and a more efficient, easier-to-use regulation.
Drafts for this update occurred in three installments, called ‘modules’:
- Module 1 - Zoning Districts and Land Uses (Public Draft Complete)
- Module 2 – Development Standards (Public Draft Complete)
- Module 3 - Administration and Procedures (Public Draft Complete)
A Consolidated Public Draft featuring all three of these completed installments is now available for review and comment through Oct. 26, 2023. This draft represents the final step prior to the adoption of the completed Land Development Ordinance, which is anticipated to occur in the first quarter of 2024.
