New Zoning Map

The city is updating the names and designations for all zoning districts, which will require a new zoning map to be adopted.

This process is part of New Code Northglenn, in which the city is rewriting its 40+ year old development regulations into a new Unified Development Ordinance (UDO). These new districts will conform as closely as possible to the current zone district and character of the area. See the chart below for a comparison of zoning districts.

  • Feb. 26, 2019 - Effective Date of new Zoning Districts
