Fort Lewis Mesa District Plan

The La Plata County Planning Commission and planning staff have kicked off an effort to update the district plans for each of the county's 12 planning districts. These advisory documents, which were first established in the early 1990s, provide growth management recommendations to the Planning Commission, as framed by the goals, policies and objectives of the La Plata County Comprehensive Plan. 

Each district plan:

  • Identifies the unique characteristics of a particular district
  • Captures key issues within each district
  • Establishes goals, policies and objectives to guide growth in each district
  • Assists the Planning Commission and Board of County Commissioner in evaluating the density, type, location and compatibility of land uses in each district
