Development Review

Wildlife and Environmental Clearance Letter Required


Prior to development or construction on land in Broomfield, a 20-day wildlife and environmental clearance letter is required and must be approved by Broomfield staff. The purpose of this letter is to confirm that any environmental or wildlife concerns on the site have been reviewed and addressed prior to construction activities on the land. Please review a more detailed description of the 20-day clearance letter.

Environmental Assessments

The goal of the Environmental Assessment process is to limit the impacts that development may have on the environment. Proposed development must also comply with relevant state and federal laws. An Environmental Assessment is required as part of the City and County of Broomfield’s PUD zoning regulations. The studies should be prepared by a qualified wildlife biologist and environmental consultant.

The Open Land/Trails analysis should be coordinated with the environmental assessment so that these areas are located with consideration to the environmental constraints and opportunities of the site. Read more.

Access Permits

If you have no alternative access and must cross Broomfield-owned property such as open space or parks, it is necessary for you to obtain an Access Permit from Broomfield Public Works Parks Division. Read more.
