Mesa County is excited to announce the upcoming launch of a new Customer Portal for planning, permitting, and code violations. While we are working diligently to ensure minimal impact to our customers, the migration will require that most of our system be down for three days

For more information and closure dates that will impact projects, permitting (Building, Stormwater, ROW & Driveway), and inspections, please review the MaintStar LMS Migration Schedule.
