Can I buy a tap for a vacant parcel?

Yes.  You may buy as many taps as you choose. Please keep in mind that a tap does NOT create a right to develop or subdivide; this is determined by the La Plata County Land Use Code.  The proposed land use for the Fort Lewis Mesa Planning District is 1 home per 35 acres or a 2 per 40 base density utilizing conservation cluster design. Recent proposed changes in County regulations may allow for 35 acre parcels to be split into two parcels, with a primary and accessory dwelling on each parcel.
