“Improving and modernizing the City of Colorado Springs’ land development regulations will make it easier for property and business owners to understand and use,” said Planning and Community Development Director Peter Wysocki. “We are thankful for all those who played a role over the last several years in helping to update our Unified Development Code as part of RetoolCOS. The new code will help implement the vision for the City established in PlanCOS and help ensure we are positioned to address future growth, redevelop aging and functionally obsolete sites, and enhance existing neighborhoods.”
