1041 Regulations

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

BACKGROUND

The City of Fort Collins is developing regulations for water and highway projects that are contextually appropriate to Fort Collins, provide predictability for developers and decision makers, and adequate guidance for review by City staff. The intent is to match or exceed state requirements to ensure the protection of public health, safety, welfare, the environment and wildlife resources.

The City is authorized to create these rules under the authority given by the State of Colorado through a 1974 law commonly known as "1041" (for House Bill 1041). The bill essentially allows local government to regulate activities of state interest through a local permitting process.

While the main 1041 Regulations page will remain active, the OurCity page will contain all of the information related to the development of local regulations, including public outreach opportunities, until regulations are fully adopted.

  • The City of Fort Collins is currently exploring developing 1041 regulations and the City is seeking your input. The survey below seeks to capture specific input that will help inform key decision points for draft regulations. The results of this survey will be combined with feedback received through other engagement efforts, and shared with decision-makers, including Fort Collins City Council. We appreciate your time in this process.” 

    Some additional context surrounding 1041s for the City of Fort Collins:

    Currently, the City of Fort Collins approves public projects through a Site Plan Advisory Review (SPAR), which is based on state statutes that delegate an advisory role to local jurisdictions to review the location, character, and extent of proposed developments on parcels owned or operated by public entities. Applications are reviewed by the City’s Planning and Zoning Commission and decisions can be overruled by an applicant’s governing body by a 2/3rds majority vote. City Council would like a more influential role in the development review process for larger public projects that affect the city, which is why City Council initiated the project.
