ATTENTION CONTRACTORS AND BUILDERS
Please note: Hours for the Ouray County Building Inspector are Monday through Thursday, 8:00 am to 4:30 pm. All inspection requests must be made at least 24 hours in advance of the requested inspection date/time. To schedule an inspection please call 970-626-9775, ext. 14. Specific building-related questions should be made directly to the Building Inspector. Non-technical questions (zoning, setbacks, fees, etc...) should be referred to the Planning Department, available at the same number.
Prior to accepting any new single family dwelling building permit application, you must schedule a pre-application conference with the Building Official.
Effective January 1, 2011, Ouray County adopted the 2006 International Residential Code (IRC). Implementation of the 2006 IRC could mean changes to both design and construction of residential structures. If you are an architect or builder, please take the time to familiarize yourself with these new regulations. If you have any questions or would like any clarification on the new requirements, please contact the Building Official at 970-626-9775.
