Permit Application Requirements
On April 4, 2022 the City of Golden started with a new, easy-to-use online platform for processing all Building, Fire and Planning permits.
You will no longer need to submit permits to us in-person at our offices–you’ll be able to submit your application with ease using your desktop computer.
Visit our Online Portal!
What does that mean for you?
- Ease of use and ability to track when applying for permits, contractor registrations, ROWs, etc.
- All payments will be made through the Online Portal.
- If you need assistance on what type of permit you need, please refer to our Required Permits Guide .
- All inspection requests will be made through the Portal.
- All scheduled inspections will be confirmed in an email notification.
- Inspections will still occur from the north to the south.
- No more calling and waiting to hear back from staff to make a payment.
- Plans will not be printed on the front end of the application, and approved plans will be printed when approved. No more paper revisions!
