Land Use Applications & Checklists

Process for submitting pre-application requests and Land Use applications 

  • Pre-Application Meeting. Planned Unit Developments (PUDs) and Special Use Reviews require a pre-application conference. Contact planning@lafayetteco.gov or call 303-661-1270 to schedule a meeting. Pre-applications conferences are optional for other types of projects; however, we recommend meeting with staff prior to submitting most land use applications. The meeting will provide direction on necessary applications, plan sets, studies, the process, and general timeline. 

    Pre-application meetings are held Thursday afternoons. We must have concept-level plans (site plan, building elevations) and narrative describing the use at least 2 weeks prior to the meeting.

  • Complete an application for each type needed. For example, if you will need a Site Plan/Architectural Review and Special Use Review, you will need both applications.

  • Contact planning@lafayetteco.gov to request an invoice prior to payment.

  • Submit completed application form(s) and all supplemental information to planning@lafayetteco.gov. All plan submittals must be done electronically. Paper copies will not be accepted.
    • All plans and supporting documents should be in separate PDF files with descriptive names.
    • Large plans can be submitted through Dropbox or a similar FTP site via a link from that site. 
  • Submittals are accepted through the 2nd and 4th Fridays of each month.
