2020 APA COLORADO LEGISLATIVE PRIORITIES

 

NEXT MEETING: MAY 8 2020

Thanks to all who have continued attending APA Colorado Legislative Committee meetings during the session and since the legislature has been “paused.” Thanks also to all who have been tracking the legislature and APA Colorado Legislative Committee activities since the beginning of the 2020 Legislative Session. We now know that soon we will start a phased re-opening of the State and the legislature is set to likely resume on May 18. In the absence of additional news today, let’s take a break from meeting this week and plan to resume on Friday May 8. So, please mark your calendars now for Friday, May 8, at noon for our next meeting. This will give us an opportunity to regroup, reengage, and get set for legislative efforts going forward. During the hiatus, we have been researching bills of interest and have taken positions on several. Please see the link below for bill listing, status, and APA Colorado position. At our last meeting, which was on April 10, Christy Wiseman with DOLA graciously took notes and shared them with us. These are attached.

Between now and May 8, we will send email notices with any new legislative information that becomes available and also post announcements on the APA Colorado website. We will also send out a meeting reminder. In the meantime, please take a few minutes to respond to a brief survey that will help us provide you with needed tools and information to keep you up to date and in the know. The link is below.

Legislative Committee Update Spring 2020

As with most aspects of life today, the 2020 State of Colorado Legislative Session has been anything, but normal. The Legislature convened on January 8 and was originally scheduled to adjourn on May 6. However, this all changed on when the session was suspended on March 14 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic leaving nearly 500 bills that had been introduced in limbo.

2020 APA Colorado Legislative Priorites

APA Colorado supports the development of equitable mixed-use, mixed-income, safe communities where people choose to live, work, and play. We support choice and opportunity by promoting equitable, efficient, and sustainable land development and redevelopment that optimizes prior infrastructure investments, and consumes less land. Less land for urban development provides balance by leaving land available for agriculture, open space, natural systems, and rural lifestyles.

POSTPONED: 2020 Planners Day at the Capital

MARCH 19, 2020
8:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Denver, CO
