City Council Adopts New Development Code
Greeley City Council unanimously voted on Sept. 21, 2021 to approve a new development code that will go into effect on Oct. 1, 2021.
The development code, Title 24 of the city’s municipal code, is a set of regulations that govern development in the city. The updated code provides options for additional housing types on smaller lots, reorganizes and reformats the code into easy-to-use chapters, and better aligns with the city’s 2018 Comprehensive Plan, the 2019 Strategic Housing Plan, and council’s three-year priorities.
Additionally, the development code update:
- Revises existing processes and procedures to create predictable and consistent, but flexible standards
- Provides more housing options for a variety of income levels
- Develops best practices for connecting trails and streets, embedding open spaces and street types, and housing compatibility and uses.
To update the city’s development code, staff worked with a citizen’s advisory committee, a homebuilder focus group, and a technical committee. During that process, officials conducted numerous work sessions with the planning commission and city council to develop a more modern code with simplified and flexible processes and procedures.
The last major update to the development code was in 1998.
