Our Online Permit Manager allows you to research permits and addresses to find information on pending permits/projects, projects under construction and completed projects.
Access the Online Permit Manager.
The Building Division is excited to announce a new and improved Permit Manager. Permit Manager allows online access to the Building Division's address files. As before, Permit Manager allows anyone the ability to research building permit history and inspection status online. The new Permit Manager provides a new look and feel and also features a new benefit of online building inspection scheduling. Contractors and homeowners can now schedule inspections at any time on the online Permit Manager and include comments for their inspector.
New homes built in Westminster after Jan. 1, 2013 will benefit from a new building code requirement – residential fire sprinklers. These new building code requirements apply only to new homes and do not apply to residential additions, alterations or modifications. By requiring new homes to have sprinklers, the city has taken a progressive step to bring this safety feature to citizens. Modern fire suppression systems only engage in the area where heat is detected. This enables residents more time to evacuate the home and minimizes property damage.
The Westminster Building Division received direction from the State of Colorado that requires permits to be applied for and issued for whole house water softener systems that are connected to a domestic water supply and the sanitary sewer system. These systems must have a building permit issued before work can commence; all work must be done by a licensed plumber, and a final inspection is needed before the permit can be closed out. In most circumstances, the permit can be issued over the counter. Water filtration or conditioning devices that are intended for use with individual fixtures do not require a permit.
Stickers will no longer be needed or issued for permits. Please be aware that all applicable sub-contractors must be signed onto the permit before inspections are called in, and inspections scheduled without sub-contractors signed on (if applicable) will be canceled.
The Building Division accepts credit cards. Payments must be made in person (no credit cards will be taken over the phone or via fax) and will be accepted for contractor registrations, building permit reinspection fees and some building permits fees.
Building permit fees may be paid via credit card with the exception of Utility water/sewer tap permits, Fire department permits, New residential or commercial permits, and Tenant finish permits (remodel permits may be paid with credit cards)
Effective Jan. 1, 2011, residential rental units are required to be licensed or registered. For further information, please visit the Rental Property Maintenance Inspection Program page.
