Over the years, regulations have been fluid, with county staff continually drafting revisions to the documents in order to protect the health, safety and welfare of the citizens of Jefferson County. The original zoning resolution was adopted by the county commissioners in 1946 and the land development regulation was adopted in 1978.
The purpose of the proposed regulation change is to amend the Park and School Requirements, to include the establishment of the Park and School Fee Schedule. The proposed regulation amendment has undergone several iterations of review and revisions. Those iterations are categorized as follows:
Initial Revisions (Version 1) This draft of changes to the regulations were created by Planning and Zoning Staff. Prior to the establishment of the draft, input was sought from the Park and Recreation Districts, Open Space and the R-1 School District. 7.4.2 Policy Fees LDR Section 4 Submittal Requirements LDR Section 32 Park and School LDR Section 33 Agreements LDR Section 9 Rural Cluster ZR Section 1 Administrative Provisions ZR Section 15 Landscaping
Regulation Review Group’s Revisions (Version 2) The “initial revisions” draft was then sent to a group entitled the Regulation Review Group. This group included Consultants, Developers, Attorneys, Park and Recreation Districts, R-1 School District and select Jefferson County Staff. The Regulation Review Group held two meetings where the draft was thoroughly discussed and as a result revisions to the “initial revisions” draft were made. Changes were only made to Section 32 of the Land Development Regulation. The attached draft only shows in color the changes that were made as a result of the Regulation Review Group involvement. LDR Section 32 Park and School (accepted original red marks and added new from Regulation Review Group) ZR Section 15 Landscaping
Jefferson County Staff Revisions (Version 3) These revisions include all changes made through the review process described above as well as additional changes that resulted from meeting with the Jefferson County Staff, which included Open Space. The attached draft only shows in color the specific changes that were made as a result of the review by Jefferson County Staff. (Eliminated proposed revisions to section 7.4.2 of the policy manual.) LDR Section 32 Park and School (accepted original and Regulation Review Group red marks and added new from Staff meeting)
Compiled Changes for the Planning Commission (Version 4) These revisions include all changes made through the review process described above and entailed final editing and preparation for the Planning Commission. These are the official documents that will be presented to the planning commission for consideration during the public hearing process. 7 4 3 Development Application Fees LDR Section 32 Park and School (changes accepted) LDR Section 32 Park and School LDR Section 33 Agreements LDR Section 4 Submittal Requirements LDR Section 9 Rural Cluster ZR Section 1 Administrative Provisions ZR Section 15 Landscaping
