Fort Collins will explore creating 1041 regulations, which could provide an avenue for stronger oversight of some high-profile development proposals.

1041 powers allow local governments to review and impose restrictions on developments that involve “areas and activities of state concern.” The idea is to give local governments a chance to ensure that regional or state-related projects meet local development standards, with each locality selecting specific areas or activities of state concern that it would like to regulate and adopting standards tailored to their community’s interests. Examples of developments that can fall under 1041 purview include:

  • “Key facilities” such as airports, highways or major public utilities
  • Water supply and treatment systems
  • Waste disposal sites
  • Transit infrastructure
  • New communities
  • Mineral resources, natural hazards or historical/natural/archaeological resources of statewide importance
