County 2017 Master Plan

On Wednesday, January 18, 2017, the Clear Creek County Planning Commission approved their new Clear Creek County 2016 Community Master Plan! The Plan is an update of the previous Master Plan that was adopted in 2004. This new Master Plan establishes a vision that strives to enhance a number of elements including; a diverse economy, a resilient community, protecting natural and cultural resources, more emphasis on recreation, and recognizing the value of distinct local communities and sub-areas that exist; all focused on improving upon the County's existing quality of life.

 A master plan is generally a guide to inform the Planning Commission and Board of County Commissioners when they make land use decisions on new development/re-development, land protection, and economic diversification.
