Apply for and access permits using the buttons above.
San Juan County has adopted the 2018 editions of the Building codes/Energy codes as of Feb 1st. 2021. Be sure to include the newest version of the form with your permit application.
The online permit center will allow you to apply for permits, pay fees, request inspections, and view the status of Public Works and Community Development permits. Applications for burn permits, vacation rental certifications, and stand-alone mechanical and plumbing (without any land disturbance) are available online. Currently no paper submittals allowed at this time due to COVID 19, please use the portal to apply online.
To purchase a Burn Permit during burn season or submit a Vacation Rental Certificate of Compliance, you must first sign up for an account. Once you have verified your account through a link sent to your e-mail (check junk mail) you must log off and log back in again. If you already have a permit in the system and don't have your access code, email email@example.com with your permit number and/or project address to get your portal access code. Access codes are only needed for 3rd party users accessing other permits.
On-line inspection scheduling can be accessed by logging in to your account, clicking on "My Portal", then "View Applications", then select the permit you wish to schedule for and scroll to the inspection section to select and request your inspection. The daily inspection schedule will be posted by roughly 9:00 am. (The order of the inspections is determined by the inspector. A rough numbering guide for your timing is 1-6 morning, 6-10 mid-day, and 10+ afternoon).
Health & Community Services applications and fees are still submitted in person or via mail - directly to the Health Department. Links to application forms and submittal information for these departments is below:
A parcel number is required for most questions. Find your parcel number using the San Juan County Polaris Web Application here.
