*PLEASE NOTE: During the week of March 2 through March 6, 2020, the Westminster Building Division staff will be attending the Colorado Chapter Educational Institute resulting in minimum staffing levels.  We ask you to take staffing levels into consideration and keep inspection requests to a minimum so City staff can take advantage of this learning opportunity.

Additionally, residential walk-through plan reviews will NOT be available during this week. As a reminder, the City of Westminster Administrative Offices are closed Fridays. No inspections will be conducted on Friday, March 6, 2020. Inspections will be made on a priority basis. Please call the Building Division office at 303-658-2075 should arrangements need to be made for an emergency.

Yes. For several reasons:

  • For your personal safety and that of your family and guests.
  • To protect future purchasers who deserve reasonable assurance that the home they will buy will be safe.
  • To ensure the economic well-being of the community by reducing potential spread of fire and disease.

    Obtaining a building permit alone will not assure the work has been done correctly.  Inspection of the work is the most important part of the process.  Having the work inspected will provide you with the assurance that the work has been properly completed. This will also provide a permanent record of compliance with building code requirements.

    Building permits provide the means for city building inspectors to inspect construction projects to ensure that minimum standards are met and appropriate materials are used. Inspection is the only way to independently verify that you comply with the adopted building codes. As a homeowner, you have a substantial investment that can be seriously jeopardized through less-than-complete code compliance. For insurance reasons, resale, refinancing and peace of mind, obtaining a permit is the right decision.
