Building Code & Enforcement


The Town of Paonia does not endorse or recommend any contractor, engineering firm, abatement firm, or other third party private companies.  Occasionally the Town will hire a third-party company to perform services for the Town when Town Staff is unable to perform a service, but the Town makes no recommendations as to who residents should hire to perform a service.  If any person or company claims to be working on behalf of the Town or represents that they are the preferred contractor of the Town please call the Town Office to report or confirm at 970-527-4101.

If you live within the town limits and are planning to do remodeling involving structural changes, repairs, additions, siding, fencing, roofing, concrete, etc., a building permit is required. The Town of Paonia operates under the 2003 International Residential Building Code, of which there is a copy on file at Town Hall and often the Paonia Public Library. Costs of permits are dependent upon costs of both labor and materials. The Building Official may be reached by calling the Town Hall, or is available in person on Tuesday, and Thursday until 1PM. Please contact the Town Hall for further information.
