Land Use and Planning

Through collaboration with towns and private developers, Eagle County implements sustainable development policies in unincorporated lands in Eagle County. County planners facilitate policy development and long range plans, provide oversight and implementation of Land Use Regulations, and assist residents with review and approval process for proposed building projects and developments.

A focus on water resources, wildlife, sensitive lands, and environmental quality helps guide the evolution of processes and regulations. In 2009 Eagle County adopted the Sustainable Community Index (SCI) as a review tool for PUDs, zone changes, final plats, subdivisions, and major special use permits, and other new development proposals reviewed by the Board of County Commissioners. The SCI was recently recognized by the American Planning Association Colorado Chapter’s Sustainability Award in 2009, and is an integral part of Eagle County's Sustainable Communities Plan.
