Land Use Code Hearing Sign at Rogers Mesa Store

Delta County Commissioners unanimously voted to approve the 2024 updated Land Use Code following a public hearing Wednesday, February 21, 2024. Director of Community Development Austin Hanson provided a brief update highlighting one big change to the code.

Concerned citizens packed the Delta Family Center to challenge language and concepts presented in the updated code. Long time North Fork Resident Eli Wolcott, representing the Delta County Coalition, urged the Commissioners to continue to work on the code. One Hotchkiss resident went beyond issues with code…directing comments against the three Commissioners.

At the conclusion of the two hour public hearing Commissioner Don Suppes made the motion to adopt the code with Commissioners Wendell Koontz and Mike Lane in favor of the measure.
