After three study sessions, the Weld County Commissioners finally decided not to change the County’s existing regulations related to Recorded Exemptions (RE). At issue was a difference of opinion on how the number of lots split off large parcels in agricultural zones should be controlled. The Commissioners agreed that landowners need incentives to encourage thoughtful planning for efficient service delivery and limited road accesses. However, there was no consensus on how the incentives would work or how many lots would be excessive. Note: Currently, the minimum lot size for a recorded exemption in Weld County is 80 acres, which can be split into two parcels.
