Long-Range Planning


Long-range planning activities of the Planning Department include developing the Routt County Master Plan and subarea plans to guide the future growth and development of Routt County. Our planning philosophy balances private property rights with the long-term goals of the community. The goal of planning in Routt County is to protect the area’s rural character while accommodating appropriate development.


The Routt County Zoning and Subdivision Regulations regulate the use, development, and subdivision of land within unincorporated Routt County, and they are important tools for implementation of Master Plan goals and policies. Planning staff maintains, updates, and administers these regulations.
