Summit County Planning Commissions

Summit County has five planning commissions charged with review, approval and recommendation authority for various types of development. Each of the four basins (Tenmile, Upper Blue, Lower Blue and Snake River) has its own planning commission, and there is one Countywide Planning Commission.

The Board of Adjustment considers variance applications to provide relief in cases of development hardships, as provided by Colorado State Statutes.

All board members are Summit County citizens appointed by the Board of County Commissioners.
