The RetoolCOS Process

It’s been over 20 years since Colorado Springs took a comprehensive look at its zoning code

 The city has hired Clarion Associates, a consulting firm that specializes in city planning and zoning, to re-examine the code and make recommendations that city council will ultimately consider, revise as they see fit, and vote on. Clarion will use the city’s comprehensive plan, public input, direction from city council, experience from other cities, and perceived need to draft their recommendations. 


RetoolCOS began in December of 2019 and will finish early in 2022. The first module (their fancy word for phase) was completed in May 2020, the second was released on November 18th, 2020, and the third on January 5th, 2021.
