What is a legal non-conforming use?

A legal non-conforming use is an existing use that has been accepted even though it does not conform to the zoning regulations for the district that it is a part of. The City and County of Broomfield has strict regulations related to properties that are designated legal non-conforming. Please contact the Planning Division if you have questions about a property with legal non-conforming use.
