Eagle County offers building fee discount
July 8, 2009
EAGLE COUNTY – Residents of unincorporated Eagle County who are planning home improvement projects might want to act fast to take advantage of reduced fees by the county building department.
The first $500 of building and plan review fees for certain improvement projects to single-family homes and duplexes will be waived from July 15 to Aug. 15, the county announced recently. The reduced fee permits will be valid for 180 days.
“Qualifying projects include interior remodels, basement remodels, replacement of exterior stucco or siding and roof covering repair and replacement,” the county said in a statement. “All plan submittals must be complete in order to qualify; the reduction does not apply to any peripheral permit required as part of the project, such as electrical or plumbing permits.”
The reduced fee permits will not be available for new homes, garages or additions. For more information, contact the county’s building department at 970-328-8730.
