Masonry and scaffolding of a buildingResponsibilities

The Building Division is responsible for the inspection and permitting of construction for both private and public development projects.  The Chief Building Inspector oversees the proper implementation of adopted International Codes in order to construct safe, sustainable, affordable and resilient structures throughout our community.

River City Hall is now open to the public. Masks are encouraged when entering the building. 

If you do not wish to visit River City Hall in person, we will continue accepting and processing applications for permits and development approvals digitally.  If you have a new inquiry, please use the following resources.

Payments for applications and permits can be dropped off inside River City Hall, and will also continue to be accepted over the phone by calling the main line (970) 375-4850. Checks will also be accepted at the secure payment drop-box outside River City Hall and should be addressed to the City of Durango and include a detailed description of the project and fee being collected.
