Planning & Zoning

The Town Planning and Zoning staff works with developers, landowners, residents and the Town Council, helping to guide them through the Town’s growth process while still maintaining its character and vitality. Staff encourages development in accordance with guidelines from the Land Use Code which was established by the Town Council. In addition, the department is dedicated to consistently working with the Town’s vision, strengthening both its character and economy.


The Town of Hayden contracts with the Routt County Regional Building Department for issuing building permits and performing inspections. 

The permit process starts with registering at the Routt County Regional Building Department website, completing a permit application, and submitting draft plans online. If you need help completing the application, you are welcome to stop by Town Hall. 


If you need additional assistance, have questions or need help, please contact the Routt County Building Department directly. You can also visit Routt County website and choose the Town of Hayden Link.
