Department Overview

The Planning and Building Department consists of four divisions:

The Planning & Zoning Division is dedicated to guiding the development of the City of Cortez, through both short-term and long-term planning activities.

The Building Division is primarily responsible for inspections of all phases of commercial and residential construction.

The Fire Division conducts inspections and plan review of commercial projects to ensure that all federal, state, and local fire codes are met and maintained.

Cross Connection works to keep pollutants and contaminants out of the City's potable water supply.

All of these services work in unison to preserve and enhance quality of life in the City of Cortez.
