Welcome to the Town of Ignacio Planning Page. Hopefully, this page will help answer your questions about a variety of different projects. Please visit the Forms Page for the forms and handbooks we have available online. Many of the forms/applications required are listed below. Please remember applications are just that, only applications. They are not issued until the Town of Ignacio has signed off, and no work shall be done until it is approved. You are more than welcome to download and email any completed forms and necessary attachments to Lee.


Remember, all of our permits and applications serve as a safety measures. Without these steps, extremely dangerous situations could and would be created. Also the permits and applications help maintain the rules and regulations outlined in our Municipal Code and Downtown Design Standards for a safe and livable community.
