Community Development Permits


Mountain living has an appeal that is hard to resist. It also has unique conditions that require special preparation to obtain a permit to build, remodel and/or add on to a residence, accessory structure or commercial property.

The Community Development Departments (including Planning, Site Development, Environmental Health, and Building) all work together in the review and approval of your permits, but the property owner or the contractor is responsible for researching the property and knowing what the regulations are.

Each Department’s Requirements Packet will provide you with the information on the submittal requirements and application forms necessary for the permitting processes for new construction, additions or alterations of structures. Conditions and submittal requirements from all of the Community Development Departments must be met before the Building Department can accept and process your application.
