Community Development Offices will be closed January 29, 2021

Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and please plan accordingly. On January 29, 2021, the entire Larimer County Community Development Department (Building, Planning, Code Compliance, Citizen Resources) will be closed to conduct a system upgrade. This upgrade also affects groups outside of Community Development including Weeds, Health (Septic) and Engineering. The Online Customer Portal is part of this upgrade and will not be available as we transition to a more customer friendly system. No inspections, no permitting, no staff on call, and limited other community development services will be available that day.
