The year-long rewrite of Pitkin County’s land-use code is ready for the public’s review. The code regulates development and land use in the county.It is the first time in more than 10 years that Pitkin County has reviewed and updated the code. Major changes include incentives for preservation of air and water quality and to conserve larger tracts of land. The land-use code will be reviewed at public meetings beginning Tuesday in the county commissioners meeting room behind the clerk and recorder’s office at 530 E. Main St. The meetings will continue through March, with anticipated approval in April, according to the county Department of Community Development. The public hearings this month will include discussion on such topics as an overview of code revisions, conservation development, requirements for subdivision and historic preservation regulations.The draft land-use code may be viewed online at under the heading “Draft Land Use Code for Adoption – Jan. 2006.” Copies are also available on compact disc for $7 each.
