Building Safety and Inspection Services Office Hours
The Building Safety and Inspection Services office is open Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m.–4:30 p.m. Building permits can be applied for and issued until 4 p.m.
The Building Safety and Inspection Services office is TEMPORARILY CLOSED ON TUESDAY’S in response to the severe hailstorms that hit Boulder County in mid-July, 2018. Building permit submittal or pickup, building plan review and building staff counter services are not available on Tuesday’s. All automated and online systems will remain fully functioning, and field inspections will not be affected. Staff will respond to voicemails and emails as soon as possible during these closure times, but longer response times should be anticipated. We understand that this may present a temporary hardship for our customers, and we thank you for your patience as we work through this localized hail emergency.
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, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. 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. Download the EZ BP application form.
