Land Use Change Permits

Purpose
There is no zoning in Gunnison County. Any change to a parcel, whether it's a boundary line adjustment, a subdivision, a theme park, a mining operation, or any other use or alteration of the property, must obtain a Land Use Change Permit, which approves a specific use, but does not establish a zone for the area in which the parcel is located.

The classification of a parcel by the Gunnison County Assessor's office for taxing purposes does not necessarily indicate an approved use for the property.

Proposed Uses
Proposed uses are classified into four impact classifications, based upon the level of impact the Gunnison County Planning Commissions and Boards of Commissioners have determined a use is likely to have on its neighbors and the community.
