Frequently asked questions:
1. Why can't I see my permit status?
If you have submitted permit applications previously at the Gypsum Building Department office, please ensure you set up the online system with the e-mail already on file. Utilization of a different e-mail may cause data access delays.
2. What do I do if I have multiple documents to submit?
When uploading plans, please combine and submit only one document.
3. How do I get started?
The first step of a residential or commercial build is to submit a Building Permit and full plans for your build.
4. Do I fill out a permit for my electrical, plumbing or mechanical contractors?
No, sub-contractors will need to complete all electrical, plumbing and/or mechanical permits for your project. These permits will be linked to the initial building permit.
**Contractors please ensure you are providing a company name and contact person. Permits are released by business name, not the contactor's name.
5. Can I use any contractor I want?
Yes, but they must be licensed to work in the Town of Gypsum. Contractor's License application CLICK HERE.
