Inspections and Impact fees

In 2005 the Cañon City Fire District implemented Impact Fees. These fees are collected by Fremont County and the City of Cañon City during the initial building permit process.

The following is a brief description of Impact Fees and how they are calculated. Please feel free to direct any further questions or comments to our main Fire Station, Fire Station One, located at the address below.
