Weld County, Colorado is moving quickly to place extreme limits on solar development.

This week the Weld County Board of County Commissioners plans to take initial steps toward adopting amendments to the County zoning code and 1041 regulations that would only allow solar development in the County to occur in areas zoned for industrial uses. This move, if approved, will effectively prohibit the development of large-scale solar projects in Weld County.

These proposed amendments are scheduled to initially go before the Weld County Planning Commission on December 1 at 12:30 PM and will be considered by the Weld County Board of County Commissioners on December 2 at 9:00. Further hearings are currently scheduled to take place before the Commissioners on December 16 and December 30. The County’s current plan is to formally adopt this change before the end of the year.
