Community Development

The Community Development Department provides planning, zoning and code compliance to the community through the assistance of our consultant- West Slope Consulting, and the Marshal’s Office.

These services are intended to guide development within the community to ensure safety, prosperity, and the protection of our natural resources. Building services are provided through the Mesa County Building Department.

Our goal is to provide excellent customer service in a timely manner to assist customers through the planning and permitting processes. We welcome the opportunity to serve you.

What services do we provide?

  • Building Safety and Permitting: Promotes a safely built environment to minimize loss of life and injury to the general public and emergency responders, and to reduce property damage and destruction.
  • Code Enforcement: Eliminates nuisances on private property within the community detrimental to the health, safety, convenience, and general welfare of the citizens while preserving property values throughout the community.
