Planning Department

Our website is undergoing some Big Changes!
You may see much of our content changing and moving around our pages, as we work diligently to make all that we offer ADA compliant, and prepare for La Plata County's coming migration to a brand-new and updated website. We are so appreciative of your patience, and welcome any questions if you are struggling to find something!
