Building Permits

Questions about building in Bluff? View our easy flow chart to learn about the process!

The Town of Bluff enacted zoning and planning ordinances governing new development within the Town.  In some cases new development may require subdivision review or formal site plan review as provided by the ordinances.  All new development will be screened for compliance with Town ordinances. To obtain a building permit the applicant must first receive a Land Use Clearance (LUC) from the Town of Bluff Planning & Zoning Commission.  After approving the LUC the Commission will send the LUC to San Juan County. The applicant must send their full application to San Juan County. The County will issue a building permit if the application for the building permit is complete and includes the LUC. A building permit must be obtained before beginning new construction, before moving a trailer or pre-built home onto a lot and for any addition or remodeling.
