Board of County Commissioners


For information regarding the Control and Licensing of Dogs and Pet Animals please visit the  Douglas County Sheriff’s Animal Control information page.

The following ordinances are included on our website for informational purposes only and represent all the current ordinances in effect in Douglas County.

To obtain an official/certified copy of any County Ordinance, please contact the Clerk and Recorder’s Office at 303-660-7469.

Pursuant to CRS Section 30-15-405 & 406, County ordinances are typically adopted on First Reading at a Board of County Commissioner Business Meeting. Subsequently, after notice has been provided in the newspaper, the Board of County Commissioners will adopt an ordinance at Second and Final Reading (which is conducted at a public hearing). If adopted as an “emergency ordinance”, the ordinance will take effect immediately. Otherwise, all ordinances go into effect 30 days after publication after Second and Final Reading.
