Welcome to the Larimer County Planning Department

New Land Information Portal is Now Available

The new citizen's web portal is now available. Citizens can now:

  • view land use applications
  • create a code compliance complaint
  • search for building contractors and renew building contractor licensing
  • search for existing permits and the status of their permit, schedule/cancel inspections, and apply for specific types of permits.

To access the online portal, please go to: https://onlineportal.larimer.org

A registration and login are required to use all features of the citizen's web portal. To register, please click on register on the main page of the portal (click here to view instructions on how to register.) Registrations will be reviewed and approved starting June 6, 2016. Please check your email for registration approval.

We are excited for this new opportunity and appreciate your patience with us during this transition.

Larimer County's land use regulations apply in the unincorporated area (outside of city/town limits) of the county. Incorporated cities and towns within Larimer County include Fort Collins, Loveland, Estes Park, Berthoud, Wellington, Timnath, and portions of Johnstown and Windsor.

New Permit Processing System will Take Effect June 6, 2016

On June 6, 2016, Larimer County will transition to a new software system to handle all land development and permit applications. The current software is unsupported by the vendor and is incompatible with updated programs.

A new citizen's web portal will also be unveiled on June 6, 2016. Citizens will now be able to view the status of their permit, scheduled/cancel inspections, pay fees by credit cards, search for existing permits, view land use applications and apply for specific types of permits.

To use all features of the citizen's web portal, a registration and login will be required. Free training will be provided later in May 2016 on how to register, along with how to instructions on the web page. If you are interested in attending a free training session on the citizen's web portal, please reply to this email (lcplngbldg@co.larimer.co.us) or leave a message at 970-498-7696 and let us know what day/time would be the most convenient for you (Morning, Afternoon, Evening, Specific Day of the Week.).

To implement this new system a few modifications to the way we do business will take place:

  • May 27, 2016 will be the last day we can accept or issue new or existing permits until June 6, 2016. During this time frame we will continue to perform inspections, review plans and applications and offer code advice.
  • Effective June 6, 2016, all inspection requests need to be completed by 11:59 p.m. the day before the requested inspection date. We will no longer be able to process same day inspection requests.

We are excited for this new opportunity and appreciate your patience with us during this transition.
