Mission Statement

To educate the public by promoting and preserving building safety by the enforcement of municipal codes, and to enhance the relationship with the public and the building community by promoting an open door policy and courteous service to all through teamwork, personal pride and ethics.

The City of Trinidad Building Department is working hard to control the blight for the safety and welfare of beautiful Trinidad. We see the anti-dilapidation ordinance (Chapter 5, Section 5-45) as a path to progress for the city and its citizens. Citizens may report any of the following: a vacant building or residence, excess debris, broken windows or doors, or a building that is being used for illegal behavior by using the Citizen Request Form. Once the form is received, the Department will add an address file to the ADO registry, respond to the request and reach out to the property owners within three days.

Building Guidelines

The building department follows the guidelines as provided by the Colorado Chapter of the ICC and are based on the 2018 ICC code required by the City of Trinidad.
