Colorado Comeback Cash

A Word from Code Enforcement

Junk for you is treasure for me.  Treasure might also be a slippery slope to trash. The steady deterioration of a property tends to attract elements that are undesirable for everyone.  Our Ordinance is clear. You can have all the treasure you want as long as it is fenced out of public view.

If you feel that your property value, or ability to sell, is adversely affected by your neighbors’ treasure, contact the Building Department at 689-5640.

The Building Department Blog

You’re off and running with your DIY project, looking to become a home improvement hero and saving some cash in the process.

Zoning and Building Codes are those rules and regulations that govern everything from fence height to the clearance in front of a toilet. If you don’t comply with Building and Zoning Codes, you may be on the hook for fines and an expensive tear-out and redo of your project.

Heck, you say. Nobody is going to notice a little bathroom renovation going on in the back of your house. That may be true, but the real intent of Building Codes is to make sure your house is safe and healthy. Not conforming with codes could cost you when you decide to sell your home—a sharp-eyed home inspector undoubtedly will spot violations that shrink your asking price or tank a potential sale altogether.

Your Building Department is more than happy to answer your questions and assist you in making your remodeling dreams an affordable and safe reality.
