1041 regulations provide local governments the opportunity to name and regulate matters happening within their jurisdiction that have statewide and local impacts. The term “1041” refers to the name of the 1974 Colorado legislative bill (House Bill 74-1041) that created the 1041 powers. The statutes regarding 1041 powers are also referred to as the Areas and Activities of State Interest Act (AASIA). The AASIA allows local government to regulate activities of state interest through a local designation and permitting process.
The City’s 1041 Regulations (Regulations for Areas and Activities Designated as Matters of State and Local Interest) were adopted to be contextually appropriate and to provide predictability for developers and decision makers. The regulations allow for adequate guidance for review by City staff to ensure the protection of the public health, safety and general welfare of the community.
