USE AND DEVELOPMENT PERMITS: This application form is for commercial buildings, commercial remodels, and tenant
improvements. Please note, depending on the use and size of building, a Development Plan, Sketch Plan, Basic Use or
Conditional Use Permit may be required. A building permit plan review cannot be done concurrently with a Development
Plan, Sketch Plan or Conditional Use Permit review. Please speak
o a Planner if you have any questions regarding use and
development permits.
Please indicate any Use or Development Permits obtained for this project, including the date(s) of approval. If you are processing
applications concurrently, indicate that approval is pending.
Permit Number(s):
WILDLAND URBAN INTERFACE: If a property is located within the Wildland Urban Interface, a Wildland Assessment is required prior
to submitting the building permit application. Contact the Fire Marshall at 307-733-4732 to arrange a meeting. The IWUIC
application is available online at
Is the property located in the Wildland Urban Interface?

the County GIS Map Server
If located outside of Flood Hazard Zone X,
a Floodplain Development Permit is required and may be processed concurrently with the Building Permit application.

If the designation is not Zone X, have you submitted a Flood Plain Development Permit Application to Engineering?
DING: A separate Grading & Erosion Control application is required when the proposed land disturbances exceed the below
thresholds. If a Plan level application is required, a Pre-Application Conference is required prior to application submittal. Identify the
area of disturbance in each slope category:

and associated setbacks are required to be shown on the site plan. County
regulations may prohibit development in a wetland or waterbody and associated setback, except under specific circumstances. A
