What construction projects may occur in the City of Montrose right now?
Colorado Governor Polis issued an order requiring many businesses to close during this COVID-19 pandemic, but also stated that construction, including but not limited to housing for low-income and vulnerable people, skilled trades such as electricians and plumbers, and other related firms and professionals are deemed ’critical’ and may continue. He also stated that this is not the time for Coloradans to seek contractors for non-critical residential remodels, because we all should be reducing our person-to-person interactions as much as possible, and staying at home as much as possible. For the safety of our community, we request that if a construction project is not creating a new residential or commercial unit, and is not immediately critical for health or safety reasons, please wait and do not perform that work right now. We recognize that a decrease in construction projects puts an immense strain on our economy and your livelihoods, and we are making this request because the health of our community is at stake. While there is no clear line between what construction is critical and what is not, our general process will be to allow:
Continuation of already-started permits for new residential units and commercial units
Continuation of already-started permits on the interior of an occupied building when the work is needed for health or safety reasons
Permits for new residential units and new commercial units
Permits for work on the exterior of a building
Permits for work on the interior of an occupied building when the work is needed for health or safety reasons
How do I apply for a new Building Permit?
To submit a new Building Permit application, please contact Sharon Dunning at Sdunning@cityofmontrose.org or 970.240.1476. We are accepting and reviewing electronic submittals, and think you will like our streamlined process.
Will the City of Montrose inspect my project?
The City of Montrose continues to offer building inspection services to ensure that work is completed in compliance with Building Codes. Some inspections will be done on-site and others will be done using video technology. If an on-site inspection occurs, the Building Inspector must be the only person at the job-site unless otherwise requested by the Building Official. To ensure the safety of projects, the Building Official may issue a Temporary Certificate of Occupancy (TCO) during the COVID-19 emergency and require that an additional inspection occur at a later date to obtain a Final Certificate of Occupancy. Please contact Sharon Dunning at Sdunning@cityofmontrose.org or 970.240.1476 to schedule an inspection.
Are any additional requirements in place because of COVID-19?
It is the expectation that contractors follow all Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment guidance with regard to social distancing, hygiene, and disinfection as necessary to protect worker and community safety. Please see https://covid19.colorado.gov/ and www.montrosecounty.net/COVID19 for more information about COVID-19. Safety posters in English and in Spanish from the National Association of Home Builders are attached to this email. Please post them at your jobsite and share them with your teams.
Is there financial assistance available for unemployed workers?
The Colorado Department of Labor and Employment handles unemployment matters in the State of Colorado. They have created a variety of resources for workers and employers affected by COVID-19. For common unemployment questions, changes made as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and other information for workers and employers, visit their website at ColoradoUI.gov. More information about additional COVID-19 assistance from the federal government will be available on the website soon. Information about local assistance, including food assistance and mental health assistance, can be found at http://www.cityofmontrose.org/COVID19.
