EZ BP Program for Residential Building Permits

EZ BP’s (easy building permits) are residential building permits that can be applied for that do not require plans for submittal.

EZ BP’s can be applied for between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, and between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Tuesday. When short-staffed, we may not be able to issue permits over the counter, but every effort will be made to complete the EZ BP within 24 hours. EZ BP’s are issued at the county’s Land Use Department at 2045 13th St. in Boulder.
