Land Use Plan

Park County Land Use Plan

In 1978, the Board of County Commissioners adopted a planning document entitled “Park County Land Use Planning” to satisfy state law enacted in 1975 requiring all counties to adopt land use plans. In the 20 years that followed, the population grew, and the political, economic, legal and planning environments changed significantly in the County, leading to the need for an updated plan. On September 15, 1998, the Board adopted the Park County Land Use Plan, which is still in use today.

Planning Area Comprehensive Policy Statements

There are 12 planning areas in Park County. In 1996, the Planning and Zoning Commission developed Comprehensive Policy Statements for 11 of the 12 planning areas (Meeteetse was reportedly done separately, though record of the plan has not yet been located), in preparation for development of the 1998 Land Use Plan.
