Community Development

Department Update 3/19/2020:

After suspending the March 18 Design Review Board and the March 23 Planning and Environmental Commission meetings, the Town will move forward with virtual meetings beginning with the Design Review Board on April 1 and the Planning and Environmental Commission on April 13. Applicants whose hearings were postponed, due to this suspension, will have their hearings moved forward to the next meeting. All board members, presenters and staff will be attending virtually as the municipal building is closed to all public meetings.

Community Development would like to let everyone know that we are actively processing applications, performing plan review and issuing approved permits, as well as performing inspections Monday – Friday. Staff members are working remotely to ensure that projects are not negatively impacted. Questions regarding the status of your applications & permits can be addressed by emailing cdev_submittal@vailgov.com. Our Admin team will be responding to emails regularly and will be able to provide you with the most up-to-date information. In-person payments will be accepted by appointment only by contacting Shelley Bellm at sbellm@vailgov.com or 970-479-2325. Credit Card payments can be accepted over the phone and inspections can be requested by emailing inspections@vailgov.com.
