Zoning Code Draft Ready for Review

As part of New Code Northglenn, the city  is rewriting its 40+ year old development regulations into a new Unified Development Ordinance (UDO). 

The project has explored a series of contemporary land use issues with the aim of creating a new development code that will guide Northglenn into the 21st century. 

At this time, the city is ready to present the Consolidated Draft of the UDO for review and comment by the public. It is available at The three parts of this draft include:

1. Administration and Procedures -– How are development and land use applications evaluated and approved?

2. Districts and Uses – What can I do on my property, and where can I do it?

3. Development Standards – What level of quality is required for development such as parking, landscaping and building design?

Throughout this process, the three parts of the code were discussed with a task force of community residents, the Planning Commission, City Council and at public open houses. Their feedback was taken into consideration for this Consolidated Draft.

On the website you can find the substantive changes made to the earlier versions that are now reflected in this Consolidated Draft. 

If you have any questions or comments about the process, results or how this document may affect you, please go to or email
