Inspection Requests: Please request isnpections online through CommunityCore. Inspection requests must be called in by 4:30pm THE BUSINESS DAY BEFORE the inspection is needed.

Community Development’s Commitment

  • Providing professional, efficient customer service
  • Promoting greater understanding of the Town’s building and zoning codes
  • Finding practical and common sense solutions

To this end, the Town of Frisco has moved the building and planning application submittal, permit fee payments, and inspection process online. Please see below for instructional information, and if you have any questions, please email.

Online Services

If an applicant has not been set-up with a CommunityCore logon, please email to be set-up with a logon link. Applicants with logons, will apply for all permits online through the Town’s 24/7 CommunityCore online software system (link below). Once your application is complete and all documents are uploaded (in PDF format), we will review the online submittal and you will receive an email when fees are assessed. You may then login to CommunityCore when you are ready to make payment with a credit card. After payment is made, Community Development will perform a plan review, once this is complete to the satisfaction of the Town of Frisco and approved, the permit will be issued and an email will be sent to the Applicant. The Applicant can then access the permit and inspection card in CommunityCore through “Documents”. These two documents must be posted at the construction site for the inspector to access. In addition to applying for permits and paying online, customers are able to request inspections online and track the status of their permit applications.

Making an Application

The key to a successful application is to know what you are applying for. Sounds simple – and it is! If you do not submit a complete application, the timeline for review will be delayed. As part of Frisco, Colorado’s Community Development Department, the Building Division administers the building permit process and reviews projects according to adopted building construction codes. The Building Division works closely with the Planning Division and all building (not technical) projects must obtain both Planning and Building approval. Sometimes this approval will require two separate applications; please look at the Planning Department’s applications page to see if your project requires a separate application.

Please ensure you prepare the following, prior to submitting online:

  1. Know what application for which you are submitting. If you have questions, please email.
  2. Know the technical information specific to your application. Review your application submittal requirements below.

A couple of tips to help you when you submit an application online:

  • Skip over the “Category” field as it will pre-populate based on what you enter as “Permit Type”.
  • On the jobsite address, always click on “Change Address: Search” and enter at least 3 digits of the address. For example, if the address is 87 Hawn Drive, you would need to enter the numbers 87 and a space for the address to pre-populate, then click on the correct address.
  • You will not be creating a project, so ignore that.
  • If you run into any problems, there is a chat feature which you can access by clicking on the ellipsis (…)  in the upper right corner by your initials. You chat directly with a representative within minutes who can help you with any issues.

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.
