Colorado Land Use Survey


The Department of Local Affairs, in partnership with the Colorado Municipal League, Colorado Counties, Inc., and the American Planning Association Colorado Chapter, released the results of the 2020 Land Use Survey.

The Land Use Survey provides a snapshot of the current planning practices of Colorado local governments. Similar surveys were conducted in 1983, 1992, 2004, 2010, and 2015. Efforts were made to keep the survey questions consistent from one survey to the next to aid in a longitudinal analysis. A few new questions were added to reflect current issues.

Special thanks to our Land Use Survey partnering agencies:

  • Colorado Municipal League
  • Colorado Counties, Inc.
  • American Planning Association - Colorado Chapter
