Planning Commission

  The Green Mountain Falls Planning Commission is a five-member advisory body appointed by the Board of Trustees. The Commission’s powers and authority are codified in Green Mountain Falls Municipal Code Article X and Colorado Revised Statutes.

Meetings are held as needed at Town Hall. The meeting agenda is posted 24 Hours ahead of the scheduled meeting. Once approved, meeting minutes are made available to the public on the Town website.

Transparent Decision-Making

All GMF Planning Commissioners and Applicants are reminded that the integrity of an advisory body is maintained when the public trusts that decisions are being made through a transparent, fair process. The article, Talking Behind the Public’s Back – The Ex-Parte Problem, by Ted Shekell, AICP,  on PlannersWeb, explains how staff, board members, and applicants are all responsible in creating an environment of impartial decision-making.

Please do not contact the Planning Commission directly with questions about Land Use Approvals. Town Hall Staff is here to answer any questions you have.
