Property proposed for development must be within the city limits of Lafayette. If the proposed development is outside of the city limits, but within the Urban Growth Boundary as shown on the Land Use Plan Map, it must be annexed into the city before or concurrently with the review process. If the proposed development is outside of the Urban Growth Boundary then either the boundary must be amended by the City Council, or the development review must be through Boulder County. Annexations require public hearings before both the Planning Commission and City Council.
A pre-application meeting with city staff and a neighborhood meeting is required before submitting a formal application. Completed applications, with accompanying required documents, should be submitted to the Planning and Building Department at City Hall, 1290 South Public Road. Application fees are due at time of submission.
