Building Department

General Information
The Building Official is responsible for building permit review, inspections and code enforcement. The Town of Ridgway has adopted the 2006 International Codes, as amended. In addition, the Town has adopted a Prescriptive Energy Code and Green Building Standard, which is found in Chapter 6 of the Municipal Code. Please call the building office to confirm permit requirements before starting any work. All plumbing and electrical permits are handled by the State of Colorado. A Certificate of Occupancy (CO) must be obtained before any building can be occupied. The building inspector works Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Please call Mike Gill at 970-626-5308 x216 to schedule an inspection. A minimum 48-hour notice for planned inspections is very much appreciated.

Building Permit Application and Documents
As you are applying for a building permit, please carefully read all components of the Building Permit Application. This document outlines all required steps for a successful building permit and contains documents that are all editable in Adobe Acrobat. This is intended to save you a lot of time and effort by helping applicants through the building process.  Disregard portions of the application that are irrelevant to your project. 

Please note that incomplete submittals will not be reviewed by the Town until all necessary items in this worksheet are received, thus lengthening the time it takes to receive your permit.
