Allowed & Conditional Principal Uses

The Arvada Land Development Code (LDC) establishes land-uses that are permitted "as-of-right," permitted if certain conditions are met, permitted after a public hearing if certain conditions are met, and not allowed in each zoning district. Within the LDC, Land Use by Zoning District, is a table organized by zoning district and uses with four different identification types within each cell that indicates whether or not the use is allowed in a zone district. Those being:

  • Allowed (A): The use is allowed "as-of-right" provided that all other regulations within the LDC are met to accommodate the use on the property.
  • Limited Use (L): The use is allowed provided that specific standards related to that use are met. These standards can be found in the code section included under the reference column of the table in the LDC.
  • Conditional Use (C): The use may be allowed provided that compliance with specific standards that pertain to that use are met and that a public hearing review in front of the Planning Commission and City Council have occurred.
  • Blank Cell: The use is prohibited in the zoning district.

For ease in determining whether or not a use is allowed in a specific zoning district, please use the links in the navigation.
