The County is reviewing the implications of growth, intensity and climate change relating to its codes of governance and actions. A public outreach group consisting of the development community, students, and interested citizens of Pitkin County is being convened to meet weekly to discuss the implications of growth, land-use patterns, the impacts of intensity of development, and climate change. The ultimate objective of this group is to  provide community input and recommendations to inform future actions to be taken by Pitkin County on these items.
