View Executive Summary

The City of Thornton’s current zoning code does not reflect or reinforce the vision and goals of the 2020 Comprehensive Plan, Sustainability Action Agenda, and Energy Action Plan. The City will embark on a project to update its code in 2022 and wants to incorporate sustainability principles into the new development code and design standards.
