Building & Planning
The Board of County Commissioners encourages community involvement in local government and, as such, requires an open, public process in which the business of the public is accomplished in public and posted for public review. Land use decisions are no exception. Following are links to the online resources related to the County's work processing land use applications, and other land use decisions.
The Building Department works to provide timely, effective, consistent, and competent plan review and inspections of structures in San Juan County while insuring safety and compliance with the building codes.
The vision of the County’s citizens is embodied in the Town of Silverton and San Juan County Comprehensive Master Plan (CMP), the keystone to the County’s growth management program. Planning facilitates implementation of the CMP through review of land use applications, which are presented to the Board of County Commissioners as the decision-making body.
