How do I get to the Building Department?
The Building Department office is located in Fairplay at 1246 County Road 16. County Road 16 is located east of Highway 285. Turn East (left) traveling from Denver just before the Tall Country Gas Station. Traveling North on Hwy 285 you would turn East (right) just after the Tall Country Gas Station. Other County offices that you will need to contact are also located at this same address, such as the Environmental Health & Code Compliance and the Planning Department are in the same location.
