The Town of Parker Community Development Department’s Planning Division, along with consultant Clarion Associates, has been working at developing a comprehensive update of the Land Development Ordinance (LDO) for the first time since its adoption in 1981. The LDO, Title 13 of the Parker Municipal Code, governs lands use and development within the Town. Its purpose is to preserve and promote the public health, safety and general welfare of the community. It is one of the most important tools to implement the vision and goals of the Parker 2035 Master Plan - including guiding growth and development in the Town of Parker.
The first of three installments, Module 1 - Zoning Districts and Uses, has been completed and is now available for public review and comment through May 22, 2020.
This first installment public draft covers the following sections within the LDO:
- Chapter 13.02: Rules of Construction and Definitions (Partial)
- Chapter 13.04: Zoning Districts
- Chapter 13.05: Use Regulations
- Chapter 13.06: Oil and Gas Regulations
- Chapter 13.07: Marijuana Facilities
Also included in this installment are general formatting changes and minor corrections to style and grammar that allows for easier reading and navigating the Code.

Next Steps – Comments from the public review period will help to inform the final draft of Module 1. When completed, the Module 1 final draft will be posted on this project website in anticipation of insertion into the final ‘Consolidated Draft’ of the new LDO. The Consolidated Draft will include all three modules and represent the new Land Development Ordinance.
