Community Development Offices will close Thursday, December 8 at 12:30pm

The Community Development Department (Building, Planning, Code Compliance, Community Information Resource Technicians) will open at 9 AM on December 7, 2022, and will close at 12:30pm on Thursday, December 8, 2022, so staff may attend a Larimer County employee breakfast and a holiday party. There will be no afternoon inspections on December 8th. Thank you for your understanding about any inconvenience this may cause. We will respond to your request when we return.

Below are draft regulations of potential Larimer County short term rental regulations.  This draft is intended to  facilitate public comment that will inform a refined version later this year.   The two versions are the same text but one has changes highlighted for ease of tracking changes.
