A driveway permit or exemption form is required from Engineering before you begin building your home. Please call with questions; (970)382-6363.
Your driveway MUST BE MARKED for us to inspect. Please let us know this has been completed upon submitting your permit application or make other arrangements with our office. If not done, this may result in a re-inspection fee. We have flagging in our office for your use.
Before you can be issued a Certificate of Occupancy (CO) from the Building Department, you will need to CALL FOR A FINAL DRIVEWAY INSPECTION at 970-739-5824.
