City of Arvada Is Rewriting Land Development Code

Arvada’s Community Development program has begun the process of rewriting the Land Development Code (LDC). The LDC regulates land use, growth, and development over 5-year periods. This is the same city staff that recommended approval of the development that was sold to a Texas developer for $30. So they should definitely be watched closely. 

A rewritten LDC will have a major impact on affordable housing issues and through proposed rezoning, could have a major impact on our precious open spaces. 

The first public meeting on the LDC was held June 7 and involved preliminary strategy and framework. Several APA members attended. The council called for public comments and set a comment deadline of July 17. Click HERE to download relevant documents and to learn how to make comments and take surveys.

Upcoming council meetings on the LDC are scheduled for:

• August 29, 2018, 6 – 8 P
• November 29, 2018, 6 – 8 P

These final two meetings are the most critical, so please try to attend or at least provide comments!
