The Planning & Building Department provides assistance in a variety of areas, such as:

- Annexation requests and process of contiguous property
- Flood damage prevention
- Code Enforcement issues
- Historic preservation land marking program
The City partnered with Pikes Peak Regional Building Department in 2013 to provide all building services for new construction, remodels and additions for commercial and residential structures. For information regarding any type of building project, please contact our Permit technicians, David and Dorie at (719) 687-5202, or visit the Pikes Peak Regional Building Department Web Page at www.pprbd.org.
PLACEMAKING GRANT AWARDED

The grant from the Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT) will fund a group of consultants from Community Builders who will lead a Placemaking webinar training on October 22nd and a community workshop on December 4th. This exciting Placemaking project is being hosted by the Main Street program and the City of Woodland Park.
