Do you ever wonder what the zoning is on a particular property? Perhaps you’re considering purchasing a home that backs to an open field or you maybe you’re just nosy want to know what is going on with a nearby property. Of course, keep in mind that zoning can and does change; so start here, but if you have a particular concern additional research would be in order.
The first thing you’ll need to do is determine the zoning authority for the particular property. This means the City of Colorado Springs or El Paso County in most cases. (If you live in another incorporated city such as Monument, you will need to contact the city directly. Unincorporated areas, such as Falcon and Black Forest are El Paso County zoning.)
1. El Paso County zoning maps are available on their website in PDF form.
While these won’t show areas within Colorado Springs city limits they are very useful in areas of newer development that haven’t been annexed by the city. I’ve personally used these maps extensively in the Black Forest and Falcon areas, and found them to be quite useful.
