Do businesses relocating to Pitkin County need a new certificate of occupancy?
Yes, new buildings or alterations to existing buildings require a certificate of occupancy. Also, significant changes in use of an existing building require a review culminating with a new certificate of occupancy. However, if you propose to occupy a building or suite that was previously occupied by a similar use, a new certificate of occupancy is not required.
