Is all vacant land in Parker designated open space?

Parker does have a robust open space program. However, not all vacant land is what it seems. There are currently many undeveloped properties in the Town of Parker that are often mistaken for open space.

What many people don't realize is that all properties within the Town limits, including these undeveloped areas, are already zoned. Zoning means that a property has been designated for a particular use or uses. Types of zoning include business, commercial, residential and industrial. Land can only be utilized for the purposes allowed under its zoning classification.
