Comprehensive Plan and Code

Winter Park, CO | Official Website

To ensure that growth within the community is consistent and fits our vision for the future, we use the Comprehensive Plan and Unified Development Code (UDC) as guiding documents to control how the area develops.

The Comprehensive Plan was updated in 2019 through a community initiative known as "Imagine Winter Park". Through this process, four visions for the future were established:

  • Our Character & Culture
  • Our Local & Global Connectivity
  • Our World-Class Recreation
  • Our Healthy & Thriving Environment
