Carbon County Land Use Plan Community Outreach

Carbon County LUP Community Outreach_09.15.2023

Carbon County Land Use Plan Update Carbon County Planning and Development is starting the process of updating the County’s Land Use Plan, which is intended to be a guide for future development and growth for Carbon County. The land use plan should provide a functional plan for 10 years, with an outlook out to 20 years. Carbon County wishes to update its land use plan utilizing a planning process that is engaging, well-conceived, and professionally facilitated. 

The County expects the plan to be a community-based effort emphasizing citizen involvement with representation and contribution from a variety of citizens, areas in the County, community groups and organizations, local agencies, City and County boards, commissions, and the Board of County Commissioners. The County expects the community participation process to be innovative and will consider a variety of outreach methods to reach as many citizens as possible during the planning process. This will help to create a county vision that will assist in establishing goals and objectives for the County’s future. The goal is for the land use plan to generally be completed within 9 to 12 months from the kick-off meetings. 

The first outreach event of the LUP update will take place in the form of public open houses. These open houses will give the public a chance to provide input into where they would like to see development in unincorporated Carbon County and input into the goals and objectives of the County LUP. These open houses will be hosted in Rawlins on Wednesday, September 27th and in Baggs on Thursday, September 28th. Other public meetings will take place throughout the County at later dates. More information on the open houses can be found below. For more information about the Carbon County Land Use Plan and to participate in the land use plan survey, please visit
