About The Land Use Coalition
History of the Land Use Coalition
Our grassroots organization grew from an overwhelming deluge of letters,
phone calls and faxes to us, and to the Boulder County Commissioners
protesting their imminent adoption of certain "slopes regulations"
which would restrict a landowner's ability to build on slopes of over
20% grade. (1999)
The slopes issue brought us together but with all the letters and phone
calls, many other issues emerged: the county's merging of contiguous
properties, problems gaining access to properties, the county's treatment
of applicants, and the Site Plan Review process itself.
We are committed to promoting education, awareness and support for
landowners in Boulder County and beyond, while supporting open space,
wildlife and preservation.

In addition to continuing to monitor the Commissioners, and making
sure they have access to competent expert information, we take action
in several other ways:
- notifying landowners of county changes in policy
or regulations in time for us to do something about it,
- monitoring and
lobbying state legislation which might impact our ability to build on
- identifying potential court cases to serve as test cases or
group cases challenging the County's right to unreasonably interfere
with our ability to build, and
- form a support
group for those of us going through the process, with tips and suggestions
for the applicant obtaining a building permit.
Our long term goal is
to make Boulder County government more accountable for its decisions,
and more responsive to its citizens.
