Zoning is a method used by local governments to create zones or areas for different types of land uses to provide separation between uses that may be incompatible. An example of this is having different zoning districts or areas for residential uses and for industrial uses.

Larimer County uses zoning districts to manage land uses and development of parcels in the unincorporated area of the county (outside of city or town limits). The zoning regulations also specify minimum lot sizes, minimum setbacks and maximum building heights. Click on the buttons below for more detailed information about zoning in Larimer County.

Zoning information provided online is general in nature. Specific properties may have different requirements than those noted by zoning district. Please contact the Planning Department to verify allowed uses for specific properties.
