Comprehensive Plan

The Town of Berthoud is in the process of updating our Comprehensive Plan that will help us steer our future and create the best possible place to live, work and play. Input for the plan update will be sought from local residents, businesses, property owners and community leaders.  An advisory committee consisting of Town Board and Planning Commission members will coordinate the planning effort with technical assistance from Town staff and a local consulting team. The final product - the 2021 Berthoud Comprehensive Plan - will provide the Town of Berthoud with a guide for accomplishing community planning objectives for many years to come.
