Larimer County provides the following information about the 1041 process…

Activities of State Interest-1041 Review:  State Statutes allow local governments to designate certain areas and activities of state interest and require permits for development involving those areas and activities. A 1041 Permit is required prior to conducting any activity that has been designated as a Matter of State Interest (power plants, solar energy power plants, transmission lines, pipelines, etc..).  


1041 Permits for Designated Matters of State Interest Larimer County Land Use Code – Section 14.0  


Areas and Activities of State Interest includes regulations for activities that have been designated by the county as a ‘matter of state interest’ and requires approval of a 1041 permit, unless specifically exempted.    


Larimer County’s ‘designated matters of state interests’ are listed in Section 14.4, and include power plants, solar energy power plants, transmissions lines, substations, water, sewer and gas pipelines, gas storage facilities.  Other activities which may be designated by the county from time to time.


Purpose - Areas and Activities of State Interest (1041 Permit) review is to facilitate the identification, designation and  regulation of areas or activities of state interest consistent with applicable statutory requirements.


1041 Permit Approval  - A 1041 Permit is required prior to conducting any activity that has been designated as a Matter of State Interest, unless the County Commissioners have granted an appeal to the requirement for a Permit or have adopted an intergovernmental agreement such that a 1041 Permit is not required.  


The Planning Commission and Board of County Commissioners evaluate each proposed use for compliance with the general permit requirements listed in Section 14.10 and additional specific review criteria listed in Section 14.11 of the Land Use Code, as applicable.  


The County Commissioners may impose ‘conditions’ when approving a 1041 Permit.  


This is a discretionary approval process by the County Commissioners.

Unfortunately, the TWP 1041 Permit Application files made available by the City of Thornton were not created in a "user-friendly" format.

    

There are 37 PDF files, most of which did not have descriptions of what was contained in each file. To help you find the files you are interested in, we've listed them all by the subject covered in those files.


Additionally, if a reader wanted to copy selected sections and paste them into another document for the purpose of being able to accurately cite that section in a letter of concern to their elected officials, it was impossible to do so.


We’ve reformatted all of the files so it is now possible to copy selected sections and paste them into another document.  We've created direct links to the user-friendly files to make them easier to access.
