Building permits are required by La Plata County for all new structures, additions, remodels and placement of manufactured/modular homes in unincorporated (non-city, township or Tribal) properties. While applying for a building permit property owners must provide authorization for driveway access, sewage disposal and domestic water supply.

County building officials inspect residential, commercial buildings and other accessory  structures throughout the construction process. Building officials conduct inspections of, but not limited to, footings, stem wall, nailing, framing, plumbing, mechanical and energy compliance. At the conclusion of a successful final inspection, a Certificate of Occupancy (CO) is issued.
