As of March 15, 2021, permits need to be submitted using the new Cascade Permitting Software. If you are unable to utilize the Cascade computer software, which will help process this and future projects quicker, we can accept a manual permit until April 19th which includes the process of using an excel application, not a PDF application. (see link to Manual Permitting instructions in the left side bar of this page)
Please note that all Monument construction permits will still go through Monument and PPRBD. Any "minor" permits such as electrical, would only go through PPRBD. Any work done within the Town border would still also need a Town of Monument business license. For more information you may go to our FAQs page
