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.

 The City of Grand Junction is updating its Zoning and Development Code and the Module 2 draft (PDF) is now available for public review and input. Module 1 was posted this past summer and the city has planned public discussion sessions about both Modules 1 and 2. An in-person meeting is planned for Thursday, November 3 at 5:15 p.m. in the auditorium at City Hall, 250 N. 5th St. and two virtual meetings will be held on Friday, November 4 at 9 a.m. and again at noon. Comments can also be provided at GJSpeaks.org. More information is available on the City's Project website

Updating the Zoning and Development Code will consist of three draft modules. Drafts of Modules 1 and 2 have been made available for public review and Module 3 will be available in mid-December. The project should conclude in the spring of 2023. Community members may comment virtually, in person, or via email at any point during the project. The city will consider all community input gathered throughout the project in drafting the final version of the updated code.
 
The goals of the Zoning and Development Code update project include:
