Clear Creek Development

The Planning Division works with citizens and businesses to ensure that land use complies with the City of Golden zoning regulations. The division coordinates with the Planning Commission to process and review site plans and subdivision plats, and to approve land use and rezoning.

In addition, the division works with the Planning Commission to modify, update and utilize the City of Golden’s Comprehensive Plan.  The plan defines the long range goals and intentions regarding the nature and direction of future development within the City of Golden.  It contains elements on land use, transportation, community facilities, urban design, and housing.

The Planning Division encompasses many aspects of developing the city we live in, including business development, land use issues, historic sites preservation, and setting community values for long-range planning.
