This study seeks to evaluate the merits of collaborative zoning in rural areas by juxtaposing a case where zoning efforts failed to one where zoning was successfully passed by the community. While zoning practices vary greatly in different parts of the country, this study is focused entirely on rural zoning in the Rocky Mountains. There are specific obstacles and challenges when undertaking land-use planning in the West--and rural areas in particular--and this paper extracts and presenting the lessons learned in both communities.
