DGS Hybrid Event: 1041 Applications: The Changing Landscape Webinar

September 12, 2023

In 1974, the Colorado General Assembly passed the Areas and Activities of State Interest Act (House Bill 74-1041), which allows local governments to promulgate regulations that identify, designate, and regulate activities that are considered a statewide concern. Specifically, 1041 regulations require developers to obtain a permit for any activity that is statutorily defined as an area or activity of state interest—which includes broad categories of projects such as “site selection and construction of major facilities of a public utility” and “municipal and industrial water projects.” Over the past several years, an increasing number of local governments across Colorado have promulgated 1041 regulations in an effort to have more control over large development projects—including solar, wind, and transmission projects—within their jurisdiction. These regulations, which vary across jurisdictions, have imposed significant hurdles for renewable energy companies, as the regulations vary from county to county and typically involve an extensive application and approval process. Join DGS and our panel of legal and business experts to discuss tips for navigating local permit applications and potential challenges to improper government actions relating to 1041.
