Development Applications and Standards

The Community Development Director (Director) or other assigned case manager will be the primary contact for information on all development applications. The Director or case manager will manage the details of the review, referrals, staff report preparation, schedule of public hearing, and public notice.

Each development application has specific submittal requirements that are outlined in the application materials and in the City of Gunnison Land Development Code. The case manager may request additional information as deemed necessary and appropriate to complete the review.

The six stages of the development review process are available in the Overview of the Development Review Process. The ultimate decision on development applications is made by the Planning and Zoning Commission, except in the case of variances, which are heard by the Zoning Board of Adjustments and Appeals.
