Zoning regulations, that define how property in zone districts can be used, are included in the City of Arvada Land Development Code. The Land Development Code (LDC) specifies whether zones can be used for residential or commercial purposes. The LDC also regulates lot size, building placement, and much more. In general, zoning ordinances describe the acceptable use for certain areas of the City. They also describe procedures for land development and variances and whether a public hearing before the Planning Commission and City Council is required.
