BUILDING PERMITS & INSPECTIONS
NEW ONLINE BUILDING PERMIT PORTAL:
All permits must be submitted to our online building permit portal, except if you plan to submit an over-the-counter permit (see below) directly to Town Hall, please complete the Building Permit Application – Walk-Ins ONLY https://hudsoncolorado.org/DocumentCenter/View/4146.
The Town of Hudson has contracted with ProCode Inc. as our Building Department to provide the community with building plan reviews, building inspections, and other building related services. Once an Applicant meets the requirements of the Land Development Code, applicable building codes, and the Building Permit Application has been reviewed and approved by the Town, the permit fees may be assessed, paid and a Building Permit may be issued to the Applicant so the permitted work may begin.
Please refer to ‘When is a permit required?’ for more details on work that requires permits. Fees are due at after review is complete and prior to permit issuance. Fees are updated annually, see Building Permit Fees Handout, and the full fee schedule as well as submittal requirements can be found on the Permits & Licenses page.
Over the counter permits may be issued within 2 days of submission, while building permits requiring plan review could take 1-2 weeks before the first review is completed, and subsequent reviews could take an additional 1-2 weeks per review. Once the Plan Reviewer has approved the permit, the applicant is required to pay the permit fees in order for the Town to issue the permit.
Over the Counter Permits may include:
- Sanitary sewer and water repairs*
- Water heater
*Work in the Right of Way requires a separate Right Of Way Permit, see the Permits & Licenses page for application information.
NO WORK MAY BEGIN UNTIL THE PERMIT IS ISSUED BY TOWN HALL.
