Early stakeholder engagement

Local government input

In 2011, Gov. John Hickenlooper signed Executive Order D 2011-005 (EO5), which establishes a policy to enhance the relationship between state and local governments. In 2012, legislation was enacted that codifies this requirement in §24-4-103 C.R.S. Local governments will continue to be contacted to ask for their input in the development of proposed rules with state mandates when applicable. In some instances Colorado law allows local government to seek a waiver, exception, or variance from a rule requirement. This process and the criteria are often communicated in the rules. Please review the rules or contact the program area for more information about whether a waiver or variance is authorized.
