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 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 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.
