The Planning Commission is a public body, appointed by Boulder Town, to make recommendations on land use decisions related to the General Plan and on zoning and subdivision applications and to review and approve/disapprove Conditional Use Permit applications.

The Boulder Town Planning Commission meets the second Thursday of each month. Meetings start at 6 p.m. during Standard time; they start at 7 p.m. during Daylight Savings Time.

The Zoning Ordinance ( and the Subdivision Ordinance ( contain the laws, rules, process and procedure governing Boulder’s land use decisions. Any applicant preparing a land use plan should first familiarize himself/herself with the applicable ordinance before preparing a packet for the Planning Commission to consider. This simple step saves everyone a lot of time.

Applications are available online and electronic submittal of applications is encouraged. Submit all applications with attachments to the Zoning Administrator, at least 10 days prior to the next Planning Commission meeting.
