[ARCHIVED] Attention Contractors and Homebuilders


If you anticipate needing permanent power, a certificate of occupancy (CO) or water and/or sewer service during the winter months, schedule your project so that the grading and drainage improvements and utility installations are complete and inspected before November 1. Don’t get caught by the snow!

To schedule a Right-of-Way Inspection call Thorne Clark at 970-846-9337. Please provide your name, site address and building permit number. Inspections are not conducted between November 1 and April 1 due to snow restricting visibility of site improvements.

To schedule a Water and/or Sewer Inspection call Public Works Utilities Division at 970-871-8211. No water and/or sewer work can be performed in the right-of-way from November 1 – May 1 without a variance.

To apply for an Excavation Permit (ROW permit) call Public Works Streets Division 970-879-1807. In order to protect the City's infrastructure from damage over the winter months, excavation in the public right-of-way is prohibited from November 1 – May 1. You will need a variance approved by the Public Works Director if you must excavate in the right-of-way during snow season.

Also don’t forget that all construction dumpsters, port-o-johns, material piles, etc. should be out of the right-of-way prior to November 1.

To avoid potential citation in the spring make sure that all erosion and sediment control devices are installed and correctly functioning prior to snow fall.
