Pending Land Use Regulation Changes

There are no proposed amendments to the Land Use Regulations at this time.


Pursuant to CRS 30-28-204, the Planning Commissioners of Archuleta County, Colorado, held a public meeting on 1/23/19 to consider updating the County Building codes from 2006 International Residential Code (IRC) & International Building Code (IBC) to 2015 IRC & IBC with modifications, along with revision to the Archuleta County Building Safety Regulations.  After hearing public comments, the Planning Commission voted to recommend to the Board of County Commissioners no action at this time, continue on the 2006 IRC and IBC, and pursue further research on the 2018 codes.  Subsequently, the Board of County Commissioners did vote to adopt the 2015 building codes effective 1 September 2019 (Link to Building Dept. in left side bar).
