Adopted Master Plans

Long range planning in Eagle County is conducted by the Community Development Department under the direction of the Eagle County Planning Commission, and involves a public process that seeks input from community leaders, resource management agencies, service providers, special interest groups, and involved citizens. The Planning Commission is responsible for the implementation of the planning process and for the review and adoption of long range planning documents. The Board of County Commissioners provides recommendations and assures the availability of staff and other resources necessary for this important work. Long range plans typically provide lists of goals, objectives, policies and strategies that can be employed to achieve the community vision. Long range plans are living documents that can be adjusted as conditions or values change. As determined appropriate by the Planning Commission, exceptions to the plan can be made.    


In September 2020, Eagle County presented an amended Project Management Strategy for the Comprehensive Plan. The Comprehensive Plan had been put on hold due to the COVID-19 response. Staff presented the Project Management Strategy to both Planning Commissions, Zoning Board of Adjustments, and the Board of County Commissioners which outlines the planning process, timeline, expected deliverables, and collaboration structure.
