2022 Comprehensive Plan Update

In 2018 the Board of Trustees adopted “Plan Bayfield 2018” the Bayfield Comprehensive Plan (Comp Plan).  Colorado Revised Statutes (C.R.S) 31-23-206 requires municipalities with populations of 2,000 people or more to adopt a master plan, often referred to as a Comp Plan.  The Comp Plan is an advisory document to help guide future land use decisions by answering the following questions for the community:

  • Where are we now?
  • Where are we headed?
  • Where do we want to go?
  • How do we get there? 

Comp Plans should go through substantial updates or rewrites every 10 years. However, it is important to keep a Comp Plan current and relevant through necessary amendments and ongoing implementation monitoring.  After four years, the Town of Bayfield is looking at making amendments to the Comp Plan in order to keep it relevant and consistent with community values and goals.

This webpage will be updated regularly with new information about the Comp Plan Update process so that community members can stay involved. 

The Comp Plan Update Overview outlines how community members can get involved, including how to participate on a Working Group. Hurry, the deadline for the Working Group letter of interest is July 12, 2022. 

The Initial Questionnaire can be filled out by community members and emailed to nkillian@bayfieldgov.org, dropped off at Town Hall, or brought to the next Bayfield Block Party or the Bayfield 4th of July event.
