The Town of Frisco has moved the building and planning application services online. With the CommunityCore software, you can submit permit applications, make permit fee payments, request inspections, track application status, as well as obtain permit documents.
Please email us with any questions.
The Building Division of the Community Development department administers the building permit process and reviews projects according to adopted building construction codes. The Building Division works closely with the Planning Division.
Please ensure you prepare the following, prior to submitting online:
When working on your application:
Rapid Review Joint Submittal– (processed by Planning and Building Divisions) This document provides a list of requirements for the following projects:
Once the “Rapid” application is submitted online and complete, every effort will be made to turn the permit around within 72 business hours.
Building Permit Submittal – This document provides a list of requirements for the following projects:
Electrical Permits: Electrical permitting and inspections for the Town of Frisco are provided by the Summit County Building Department. Summit County will require a Town of Frisco building permit number prior to the electrical permit application being accepted.
Photovoltaic-DC (Solar): Solar applications for the Town of Frisco are handled by the Summit County Building Department .The Town of Frisco reduced the cost and consolidated its permitting process for solar projects. Collaborating with Summit County and Summit Fire & EMS, we have created a one-stop shopping approach to the process by having the applicant bring all permit materials to Summit County. No longer does an applicant need to bring application materials to the Town, Summit Fire, and Summit County for separate permits and pay separate fees. Summit County will now receive the permit application, take in the fee (a maximum total permit fee of $500) and refer the permit to Summit Fire and the Town for approval, issue the permit, and perform the inspections.
Plumbing Permits:As required by Colorado Revised Statutes, the Town of Frisco shall conduct contemporaneous reviews of plumbing contractor licensing through Colorado DORA. The policies and procedures relating to how these reviews are performed can be found on the Town of Frisco Contemporaneous Plumbing Review Procedures page.
The Building and Planning Departments require approval from other agencies as part of issuing permits and Certificates of Occupancy.
When an application and plans are turned in and fees are paid, the Building and Planning Departments will assign online all Agencies having jurisdiction and are required to approve various stages of the project. It is the responsibility of the project owner or contractor of record to contact those agencies (obtaining online approval/“sign-off”). Approvals from these agencies may require the project owner to submit plans, obtain separate permits, and pay additional fees at each agency. These approvals may include:
