Building Code and Enforcement

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 at 970-527-4101. Inspections are on Tuesday, and Thursday. Please contact the Town Hall for further information.

Please note, as of 5/5/2023, we have updated to the 2018 International Building Codes.  Those can be found here: Ordinance No. 09-2022 | Municipal Code | Paonia, CO | Municode Library
