Zoning & Development Code Update
The Zoning & Development Code update is an important next step in the comprehensive planning process, focused on making sure that the rules that govern land development (zoning and subdivision regulations) support the vision, goals and strategies that were identified by the community as part of the One Grand Junction Comprehensive Plan.
Project Overview
Summary
The City of Grand Junction is updating its Zoning and Development Code (Z&DC). This project is an important next step in the comprehensive planning process, focused on making sure that the rules that govern land development (zoning and subdivision regulations) support the vision, goals and strategies that were identified by the community as part of the One Grand Junction Comprehensive Plan.

The goals of the Zoning and Development Code update project include: 
  • Updating the City’s regulations to better reflect the goals and policies described in the 2020 One Grand Junction Comprehensive Plan, especially those Key Principles related to Responsible and Managed Growth and Strong Neighborhoods and Housing Choices. 
  • Achieving a higher level of efficiency, consistency, and simplicity. 
  • Identifying constraints and opportunities for affordable and attainable housing, consistent with those identified in the City’s recently adopted Housing Strategies. 

The Zoning and Development Code update process will be completed in two distinct phases over the next year, beginning with a Phase 1 Code Assessment Report that identifies needed updates to the Code, followed by the substantive revisions to the Z&DC in Phase 2.

Hello! My name is Ian Thomas, and I am the organizer for GJ Bike Night. One of the major barriers we have to biking and walking in the city is the sheer amount of parking required. I hope to see the city reduce or eliminate minimum parking requirements while simultaneously encouraging more mixed use, higher density development & redevelopment. We are forcing the city to spread apart by filling it with parking lots that could be much better used to increase the housing stock, increase food accessibility, and generally encourage walking and biking for basic necessities. Thank you!

Hello, thanks for taking my comment into consideration. We've lived downtown for over ten years and love it. Two of our neighbors built tall structures that diminished privacy and aesthetics for our backyard. One action home owners in our situation can do is upgrade the fence from 6' to 7'. One foot doesn't seem like a lot but it does supply more privacy; which is important. Please consider updating the code to allow city fences to be 7' instead of 6' (this will so match Mesa County code). Thanks again.
