The Littleton Center reopened on May 18 with a phased approach that includes very limited public access. Most Building and Development staff continue to operate remotely and will maintain as many business operations as possible. Staff is not currently available to walk-ins. There will be no Rapid Residential Review until further notice.
Department Staff may be reached by phone or email and virtual meetings may be pre-arranged via email with the individual staff member. General planning and zoning questions for the Planner on Call may be emailed to DRT@littletongov.org. General permit and building questions may be sent to 303-795-3829 or firstname.lastname@example.org. If a virtual appointment is not possible, please review these guidelines and call the appointment line at 720-306-1606.
The Community Development Department has five divisions. The Administration Division is responsible for the administration and provision of services for the Department divisions and the City’s historic preservation programs.
The Building and Code Enforcement Divisions are responsible for reviewing construction plans; issuing building permits; managing building inspections; investigating complaints regarding compliance with City codes; seeking and negotiating resolution of code violations; systematically inspecting multiple-family rental housing for compliance with City codes.
The Planning and Community Outreach Divisions are responsible for developing and updating the city’s comprehensive plan and its various elements; for implementing the comprehensive plan through the review of development and rezoning applications and through the writing, updating, and implementing of land use regulations, including zoning; and for providing neighborhood services that link neighbors to resources and conflict resolution.
In early 2017, BBC Research & Consulting was contracted to conduct a Housing Study for the City of Littleton.
Before calling the city for services, check the Littleton City Limits map and the Address Wizard page to be sure the address you are calling about is in the city limits. Zoning Information may be found on the city's official Zoning Map.

The City of Littleton, Colorado, is in the midst of a multi-year process to develop a unifying vision for the community's future. The Vision was the initial step in a larger process to update the City's Comprehensive Plan and create a Transportation Master Plan (see 2019 adopted plans) as well as potentially updating the city's zoning and land use codes into a Unified Land Use Code (ULUC) to ensure consistency with the vision and Comprehensive Plan.
