Land Use and Planning
The Environmental Health Division collaborates with local governments, Pikes Peak Area Council of Governments (PPACG), 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.
EPCPH reviews moderate to large scale air and water quality plans via PPACG resource planning groups.
Any proposed land use changes are reviewed by EPCPH in conjunction within EPC Planning and Community Development.
