Each zone district has a minimum acreage or square footage, allowable uses, building restrictions, etc. PUD zone districts are special in that each PUD has its own zoning regulations which have been created specifically for that PUD development.  These PUD guides are the governing documents for that zone and are enforced by the county.

The county’s official Zone District Maps identify current zoning on all properties located within unincorporated Eagle County. Zoning inquiries can be handled either in person at the planning office or by phone.  Planners verify zoning by use of parcel number and/or legal description.
