Land Use & Planning

The Environmental Health Division collaborates with local governments, Pikes Peak Area Council of Governments, other agencies, developers, and the public to incorporate public health considerations into planning and development activities. We encourage the inclusion of health-promoting policies in long range plans and reflection of health considerations in development decisions.

The following topics are not only those that El Paso County Public Health has regulatory authority over, but also the many public health issues that may arise during development:

  •  Drinking water quality
  •  Wastewater treatment
  •  Air quality
  •  Zoonotic disease transmission
  •  Opportunities for physical fitness
  •  Sustainable construction
