The County, Fire Districts, and public have been actively engaged in discussion of driveway standards for the past decade to address code deficiencies, most of which became apparent during the 2002 Missionary Ridge Fire.
On December 9, 2014, the La Plata County Commissioners adopted the amended Driveway Standards. These regulations took effect on April 1, 2015.
