Planning Services & Forms

The Community Development Director is responsible for implementing City policies that direct the physical development of the City. Policy implementation and project analysis include establishing conformance to local goals for development, adopting Ouray Community Plan policies, ensuring compliance with previously-adopted policies and agreements, and identifying environmental consequences of new development. The Ouray City Community Development Department engages citizens in an ongoing dialogue about the city’s future and plays a central role in guiding the long-term development of the built and natural environment.

A "Preapplication Conference" is a recommended first step for any subdivision, site development, or other land use processes. To request a Preapplication Conference with the City's Community Development Director (CDD), please contact the Community Development Director.
