Zoning regulations define how land in the City can be used and developed, and are included in the City of Arvada Land Development Code (LDC). The LDC establishes 26 zone districts, which specify whether zones can be used for residential, commercial, or mixed-use purposes. The LDC also regulates various development standards such as lot size, building placement, and much more. Other rules and regulations for open space, landscaping, building design, signs, and accessory structures are also available within the LDC.
