Policy Outcome(s):

This 2018 version of the Boulder County Comprehensive Plan has a section dedicated to the county-wide element of agriculture which has a history of fragmentation through past planning, policy, and university recommendations. The 2018 plan update seeks to preserve agricultural land use by developing urban centers separately, continuing to foster and promote a “diverse and sustainable” agricultural economy in tandem with land conservation, and using water management and preservation strategies for agricultural purposes.These goals are supported by broad agricultural policies as well as policies focused on infrastructure development and weed/pest management.
