Jefferson County is in the beginning phase of a major initiative to update the county’s Comprehensive Master Plan, Community Wildfire Protection Plan, Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan’s Evacuation Annex, Transportation Master Plans, and Land Use Code. The goal during the 18-to-24-month project is to design land use, wildfire evacuation planning, and transportation policies that are aligned and provide a cohesive vision for the future and identify priorities for addressing growth, services, and land use regulation. This also reflects recommendations by the former Jeffco Wildfire Risk Reduction Task Force - now the Jeffco Wildfire Commission.
Jefferson County residents, business owners and visitors can share their opinions and participate in the public workshops, surveys, and open houses over the next two years. The Together Jeffco website offers more information about the updates, opportunities to participate virtually and upcoming in person events. Anyone interested in staying informed about the process can sign up to receive the Engage Jeffco newsletter or subscribe on the Notify Me page for the Planning & Zoning Plan Updates and/or the Planning & Zoning Regulation Updates.
