Clear Creek County does not currently determine buildability of a lot. Vacant land must remain vacant until the property has a principal permitted use established.
Various departments within the Community Development Division can help you determine the buildability of a lot by guiding you through the permit process to accomplish your intended principal permitted use.
First, be sure you have the physical address of the property or the legal description or parcel number or Assessor’s “R” number. The name of the current owner could also facilitate your research.
The Planning Department email@example.com can assist you in determining if the zoning is appropriate for your proposed use.
The next question you will want to explore is the legal and physical access to the property. Our Site Development Department firstname.lastname@example.org can assist you in this determination, but you may need to engage a title insurance company for a definitive answer. Site Development personnel can also help you analyze site characteristics that will influence the ease or difficulty of developing the site.
One more aspect to explore is how you will provide water and sanitation on the site. Our Environmental Health Department email@example.com can assist you with analyzing this issue.
Another aspect to explore is how you will provide water on the site. The Colorado Division of Water Resources can assist you with analyzing well permitting or can be reached at 303-866-3581.
