EZ BP Program for Residential Building Permits

EZ BP Program for Residential Building Permits

TUESDAY OFFICE CLOSURE NOTICE:
In response to the severe hailstorms that hit Boulder County in mid-July, 2018, the Boulder County Land Use Department is instituting a temporary change in services available on Tuesday’s.
In order to maintain functioning permit activities, the Building Safety & Inspection Services division will be CLOSED to the public on Tuesday’s until further notice.
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.
NOTICE ON RE-ROOF EZBP PERMITS:
Due to the number of residential re-roofing applications that we continue to receive on a daily basis, and with the amount waiting in the queue to be processed, we have determined that it is most efficient for us to discontinue processing any residential re-roof permits over the counter until we have recovered from the localized hail disaster. Until we return to normal business hours and practices, coming in to the office to apply for reroof permits will no longer allow you to walk out of the office with the permit. We will accept your application(s) from you, but it will be added to the existing queue and processed in the order it was received.
We appreciate your understanding and patience of this as it will help us to keep our EZBP processing time as short as possible.

EZ BP

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.
