Building Greeley's Future
Updating the City's Development Code
Building on the City’s recent adoption of the Imagine Greeley Comprehensive Plan (2018), the Community Development Department has launched a full update to the Development Code. The last major update to the Development Code was in 1998. A lot has changed in the last 22 years, and the City is working to update the Development Code to meet the current and future needs of the citizens, businesses and visitors. We want to make Greeley the place where you live, work and play.
We are tackling this big project in three phases, with a targeted adoption date of September 2021. City staff, with the help of the consulting team, Gouldevans, will conduct work sessions with the Planning Commission, City Council, and a citizen Advisory Committee.
Phase I: February 2021 - May 2021
Includes changes to the format
and structure of the code. Changes to how the code is organized and sorted will
occur in this phase. A draft of the new Chapter 1 - Provisions, is available. Public hearings before the Planning Commission and City Council to adopt Chapter 1, with an effective date of November 1, 2021, will be scheduled in April and May, 2021.
The General Development Code Update Status was presented to the Planning Commission on March 9, 2021 and can be viewed here.
Phase II: March 2021 - July 2021
Includes changes to some of
the procedures and processes, with a goal of creating more efficient and flexible procedures
throughout the code and setting standards that will encourage redevelopment and
Phase III: October 2020 - September 2021
These topics will
form some of the policies that will shape and define the code language. These
more complex topics are being broken down into smaller segments to be discussed
with City Council at work sessions. The topics, with brief descriptions, can be
found below. As the discussions occur, links to the You Tube videos will be added.
