A building permit is required for new construction, additions, or alterations. You must apply for a permit in person at City Hall between 7:30 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. Examples of projects that require building permits are:
Permits are not normally required for painting or minor repairs. Effective August 1, 2010, certain work is exempt from building permit; however, zoning code requirements still apply. For zoning code requirements, contact the Planner of the Day. If you are uncertain as to whether a permit is needed, contact Building and Inspection Services at (303) 235-2855.
If you do work, or have work done, without a required permit, you will be in violation of the City of Wheat Ridge Municipal Code, Chapter 5, Article II, Division 2. Delays and additional fees or costs may be incurred.
