City of Westminster Legislative Program

The City of Westminster follows legislative activity in the Colorado General Assembly very closely.

Prior to each legislative session, City Council adopts a Legislative Policy Statement (see below) that identifies general issues that significantly impact the City of Westminster, along with the city’s policy principles on these issues. The Legislative Policy Statement is consistent with City Council’s Strategic Plan Goals and Objectives. Using City Council's adopted Legislative Policy Statement as a guide, city staff will review and analyze bills introduced in the Colorado General Assembly that have a potential impact on the city's interests.

For more information on the City of Westminster's legislative program, contact the City Manager's Office at 303-658-2004.
