Once an application has been submitted it will process over to the Building Department for application submission review and permit preparation.  Each permit application submission requires plans review from the town Senior Plan Examiner, town planners, and/or engineers as needed. Once your application is ready for the next step, the Building Department personnel will contact the applicant with permit pricing and any project information as necessary. 


Frequently asked questions:
1. How long will it take to get a permit? 
Residential Building permits typically take 3 weeks to process once we have received a completed application. 
Commercial building permits can take between 3 and 6 weeks to process depending upon the size and use of the building, once we receive a complete application. 

2. 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.  

3. What do I do if I have multiple documents to submit? 
When uploading plans, please combine and submit only one document. 

4. 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.

5. 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. 
**Contractors: When submitting for your permit online please select "ONE STOP" for the type of project. This will allow permits to be linked to the initial building permit. 
**Contractors: Please ensure you are providing a company name and contact person.  Permits are released by the business name, not the contactor's name. 

6. 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.
