Permits, Applications & Planning Information

Development Permits 

The development permit process allows Town Staff an opportunity to review a project with the applicant to determine if the proposed project is in compliance with the Town zoning and signage regulations. Most construction projects within the Town of Dillon municipal limits, require a Town of Dillon development permit. These projects include new structures, buildings, building additions, decks, remodels, window/door replacements, tenant finish, large sheds, stand alone garages, rental apartments, outdoor hot tubs, outdoor fireplaces, fences, solar panels, new driveways and driveway widening. 

Roofing and siding projects also need a development permit, but only require a building permit when the structure is modified. 

Please contact Ned West, Town Planner, at (970) 262-3421 or at your earliest convenience to discuss your project and determine what permits are required. Click here for more information about the development permits.

Building Permits 

Once a development permit is issued by the Town of Dillon, additional building permit(s) may be required for a project.
