To promote the health, safety, welfare, and quality living environment of Pueblo County residents and visitors by encouraging compatible and sustainable land use development within unincorporated Pueblo County. This is accomplished through long-range planning, developing and implementing land development policies, as well as administering and enforcing land use regulations.



Land use changes and growth will continually alter the unincorporated areas of Pueblo County. The Department will be required to process an ever-increasing number of land use applications, authorizations, and issues. To meet these challenges, the Department will: advocate sound planning practices; continuously review, improve, and update land use regulations and policies; and incorporate inter-agency and inter-departmental cooperation and communication, training, and information management technologies.
