The Town of Parker Building Division has modified its services including the process for inspections as a result of the Town’s declaration of a Local Emergency in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and previously declared State and Federal emergencies.
The Parker Building Division is taking additional precautions to provide for recommended social spacing and reduce exposure between the public and staff by limiting inspections to exterior construction as well as unoccupied residential and commercial structures while the Local Emergency is in place. This is a temporary change in the inspection process that is intended to protect the health of residents, staff and workers on construction projects. This does not allow work that requires inspections to be covered or concealed until such time that it can be inspected and approved.
Building Division staff will review requests for inspection each day and contact permit applicants and/or the contractor to discuss the possibility of COVID-19 being present on the construction site. If there is a known or suspected COVID-19 exposure, staff will work with the permit applicant and/or the contractor to reschedule the inspection for a future date. We ask that all permit applicants and contractors work with us to communicate known or suspected illnesses to reduce the potential for community spread of COVID-19 and ensure the continued health of residents, staff and workers.
During the Local Emergency, the Building Division offices will be open for business from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. even though Town Hall is closed to the public. The Division staff will continue to answer phones, respond to emails, process permit applications through eTRAKiT, review plans and work to ensure that construction is done in accordance with all building and fire/life safety codes. All permit applicants and/or contractors may pay for their permits by mailing a check or cash to: Town of Parker, Building Division, 20120 E. Mainstreet, Parker, CO 80138-7335. Payment may also be made by credit card through a permit applicant’s and/or contractor’s eTRAKiT account via the Town website.
