Offices of Planning, Building & Environmental Health
The Gunnison County Community Development Department includes three offices: Current planning (land use permitting), Building, and Environmental Health. The Department is primarily responsible for ensuring that land uses within the county are developed and maintained in compliance with the County's adopted codes and regulations,and overseeing permit reviews for those uses. The Department is responsible for issuing Building Permits, Individual Sewage Disposal System Permits and Land Use Change Permits, and a variety of other more specialized permits.
