Land Use Regulations

Eagle County’s Land Use Regulations combine subdivision procedures and zoning regulations to ensure that the health, safety and welfare of the county’s citizens are preserved. The regulations provide the authority and framework for Eagle County to hold future development to a high standard of quality and to guide orderly land use in a manner which is sensitive to the environment and natural resources.

The regulations had their beginning in 1964 when the Eagle County Board of Commissioners adopted the first resolution stipulating procedures required to subdivide property. In 1972, the board further restricted subdivision of land in response to Colorado Senate Bill 35. Both of these procedures required that certain conditions be met in order to subdivide property without county review and approval. In 1974, the commissioners adopted the county’s first zoning regulations.
