Currently, Planning and Zoning is incorporating the community plans into the Comprehensive Master Plan. The Conifer/285 Corridor Area Community Plan Update is in the preliminary information gathering stage. Planning and Zoning is holding a series of topic-specific meetings to gather public input. The next meeting will be held after the first of the year; date and place to be announced. For updates contact Heather Gutherless, hgutherl@jeffco.us , 303-271-8767.

Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU): Jefferson County Planning & Zoning is in the process of updating the County’s Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) regulations to allow more flexible options to citizens to have an ADU if they meet certain criteria. The Planning Commission recommended approval of the proposed regulations following a hearing on October 29, 2014. A hearing before the Board of County Commissioners is scheduled for November 18, 2014. For updates contact Heather Gutherless, hgutherl@jeffco.us , 303-271-8767.
