Starting Monday, March 18th, the following permits will be processed in the City’s new permits management system—Salesforce:

  • Fire Alarm/Fire Sprinkler
  • Landscape/Grading
  • Parking Reservations
  • Pitkin County Water
  • Right-of-Way
  • Utility Water Connection

We also will begin beta testing building permits in the new permits management system and are looking for volunteers to use Salesforce to apply for and manage their upcoming permit applications.  The work scope of permits eligible for consideration includes new construction, alterations, and additions.  If you are interested, please email and tell us about your project and when you think you will be ready to submit.  We will work with you to ensure that your project is a good fit.
If the beta testing goes well (and we believe that it will!!), applications for all building permits will be done in Salesforce starting about mid-April, so please don’t wait to get registered in the system.

New Permits Management System Training for Applicants

We have scheduled two Lunch and Learns for applicant training in Salesforce—Monday, March 18th and Monday, March 25th.  Both training sessions will be held in Council Chambers (lower level of City Hall) from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.   Please RSVP at if you plan to attend. 

Wireless Regulation Updates

On March 11th, City Council adopted Ordinance 5, Series of 2019, updating regulations for wireless facilities to ensure the City’s requirements comply with state and federal requirements.  Updated design guidelines, setback and spacing requirements, and clarification of review timelines were included, all in compliance with the recent state and federal rules changes.  These new regulations go into effect on April 10th, before an April 14th deadline imposed by the FCC.  A copy of the updated regulations and a memo outlining key aspects of the proposal are available on the City’s Website under the March 11th Council meeting.  Click here to view those documents.  Questions?
