Planning and Permitting help increase the resilience and investment value of a construction project, mitigate an occupant's health and safety during a disaster, protect the local tax base and ensures continuity of essential Town services.
·Permits provide third-party verification that you (or the contractor you hired) did the work to minimum code requirements
·Permits provide the homeowner with an inexpensive resource for construction-related needs
·Permits give you access to expertise in all fields including plumbing, mechanical, electrical and framing
TOWN HALL OFFICES ARE CLOSED
Due to the current CDC guidelines for Covid-19, the Town of Monument staff are working remotely. We will be processing all permit applications via email, telephone and USPS. This may take a bit more time to complete but will ensure your project moves forward. Please follow the additional checklist below to ensure your project can be processed properly and avoid further delays. Note that this process must be followed including the payment/confirmation, in order for the permit to be consider valid.
You may call Theresa Rust with questions about this process at 719-884-8015.
New home build Permit Applications are still submitted through Pikes Peak Regional building (except Townhomes. Those applications are sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, along with your plot plan). If we hear anything different from PPRB, we will inform you.
Planning will review the applications as normal and contact you if further information is needed.
If approved, the permit will be signed and emailed by our staff to the homebuilder.
Next, we request that you then sign the permit in your applicant area, scan it with a copy of your check written to either the Town and/or Triview, as notated on the permit, then email it again to email@example.com . In the email please also confirm that you are confirming receipt of the permit and are sending payment via USPS (note below) or at the Town Hall dropbox located just outside of Town Hall.
Additionally, on the outside of the envelope please address it as follows:

You MUST pick up and pay for your permit only when approved. You may pay by Cash, Check or Charge for the Town permits. Triview fees must be paid by Cash or Check only. No payment will be due at the time of submitting the permit because use tax (Town of Monument or Triview) will not be calculated until processing. Payment can be made at the time of permit issuance.
