Staff on Call, Permits, Applications and Submittals 

The Engineering Department front counter and offices are closed to the public starting March 17 and will continue until further notice. 

Under this temporary protocol, we cannot accept in-person submittals of plans or permit applications, or issue permits, nor can we respond to inquiries or engineering concerns in-person. Customers may contact us by sending an e-mail to Eng-Permits@larimer.org or calling (970) 498-5700 or sending mail to P.O. Box 1190, Fort Collins, CO 80522. 

We are working to establish a drop box for submittals and pickups, as well as video conferencing to talk to Development Review staff and permit technicians. Customers may continue to use our on-line portal at onlineportal.larimer.org. Fees may be paid on-line. Review of plans and permit applications will continue, with much of our staff either working remotely or practicing social distancing in the office. 

Site Visits 

For now, we will no longer be making site visits to development sites unless necessary. 

We will continue to inspect Right-of-Way and Access Permit locations.
