Large Property Turf Replacement Rebate Program
Multi-family and non-residential water customers can now receive $1.20 per square foot to convert areas of high-water, cool-season turf grass (such as Kentucky Bluegrass) into native and waterwise landscapes.
In addition to supporting the city's water conservation goals, benefits of these landscapes include savings on your water bill, lower long-term maintenance, habitat for pollinators, and increased drought resilience.
Eligible water customers include
Businesses, HOAs, multi-family complexes, schools, parks, faith-based organizations, and other commercial, industrial, or institutional water customers within the City and County of Broomfield.
How to earn a rebate for turf replacement of large or commercial properties
To earn a rebate, follow these five steps below.
Step 1: Check your property's zoning through the Planning Division
If the property is subject to a planned unit development (PUD) plan, then an Administrative Modification Application to the site development plan must be reviewed and approved prior to beginning construction. Note that this approval process may take approximately one month to complete.
Previous PUD Landscaping plans can be retrieved by contacting CCOB’s Planning Division at (303) 438-6284 or email@example.com.
