Code Enforcement

Benjamin Byer and Armando Mendez-Sanchez are our current code enforcement officers.

In addition to our town code enforcers, we have a Saguache County Sheriff presence in town.


Here are a few reminders from code enforcement:

  • All dogs must be leashed and under control of a person--they may not run loose with a leash attached to them
  • Building permits and business licenses are required as per state statute
  • Trash receptacles that are left outside continuously must be bear-proof
  • It is illegal to live permanently in campers, trailers, RVs, and tiny houses in the Town of Crestone (per Ordinance # 2019-003)


If you would like to submit a complaint, please contact Town Hall either by phone or email.
