Per public health guidelines, access to Town buildings is closed. However, staff is still available - many of them remotely - to provide necessary services. Here's how to work with us online.
Building Counter and Permitting
- Over-the-counter permits are still available through the Town’s permitting website
- Electronic submittals through TRAKIT are required for all residential and commercial projects. All submitted documents must be in PDF format.
- The Town Building Division will not be scheduling any face-to-face meetings. However, we do have the ability to host remote meetings. If interested, please contact 720-733-3527.
- There will be no interruption in the issuance of Certificates of Occupancy during this temporary closure.
- Until further notice, inspection services will continue for new residential, commercial and multi-family construction.
- Building Inspections related to occupied residential dwelling units, that require the inspector to go inside, will be suspended until further notice.
Please Note: In an effort to provide inspections for interior residential projects we will attempt to perform remote inspections using FaceTime, Google Duo, and Skype. These inspections must be pre-scheduled and coordinated with our building and electrical inspectors. The contractor (general contractor for building, mechanical and plumbing inspections; electrical contractor for electrical inspections; or homeowner that performed the work must be onsite to walk the project while the inspector remotely performs the inspection.) Please schedule remote inspections through TRAKIT. An inspector will contact you within 24 hours.
Please also note: For final electrical inspections a plug tester will be required
- Residential inspections for projects on the exterior of occupied dwelling units, such as decks, roofs and photovoltaic inspections (excluding attic) will continue.
- This suspension does not allow work that requires inspections to be covered or concealed until such time that it can be inspected and approved.
