Permit Application and Submission

Obtaining a Permit
Obtaining a building permit for construction within Grand County can be a relatively simple procedure. Allow 10 days to two weeks, under normal circumstances (longer during construction season), from the time you submit your application until your permit is issued.

If you live out of the county, it is recommended that you be prepared to make a couple of visits during business hours Monday through Friday to properly execute your application and permit issuance, following some basic guidelines, which are outlined in this section.

No start of construction of any kind will be allowed until a building permit has been issued.
