Do you know what’s happening with the District Plan?
Adams County and the City of Brighton are working together to create a plan for the south sub area of Brighton (approximately 5,000 acres) that investigates the feasibility of preserving farmland, making recommendations on preservation of lands that remain valuable for food production, incorporates related uses to enhance the economic vitality of these small farms and attract visitors to Brighton.
Adams County and the City of Brighton are gathering input from property owners, residents, business owners, and other stakeholders throughout the planning process. Join our neighborhood meetings to ask questions, get project updates and offer your insights.
