Impact fees are defined as one time assessments used to recover the capital costs imposed on local governmental agencies by new growth. They are governed by principles established in both State of Colorado and Federal law. Colorado’s Senate Bill 15, which was passed in 2001 , specifically gives Colorado governmental agencies the authority to levy “land development charges” or impact fees. 

North Central Fire Protection District contracted with BBC Consulting to determine a fair Impact Fee for the District. BBC Consulting determined that an allowable Impact Fee would be $6,143.00  per residential unit and $3.21 per sq. ft. of non-residential structures. 

The Board of NCFPD implemented their Impact Fees as of October 23, 2021. Since the Board of the District has the ability to choose a lower fee than recommended, they chose the fees listed below. These fees will need to be paid to the North Central Fire Protection District prior to receiving a building permit from Elbert County. 

Residential             $ 3,500.00 per dwelling unit 

Non-residential       $        1.83 per building sq ft

Burn Permit Information:

We are currently under Stage I Burn Restrictions.

The Sheriff sets the Burn Restriction Level with input from the Elbert County Fire Chiefs. For more information about Elbert County's Burn Restrictions, including the current Burn Restriction Level, see Burn Restriction Information on the Elbert County Web Site.

A Burn Permit is required to burn any time there is a Burn Restriction in effect, which is most of the time. This includes burning trash or camp fires.

Regardless of the Burn Restriction Level, weather conditions can create a Red Flag Warning condition. During a Red Flag Warning or Fire Weather Watch day, NO BURNING is allowed, even with a Burn Permit. You can check whether a Red Flag Warning is in effect on the National Weather Service Web Site.

Contact Chief Kay Osborn at 303.621.2098 for a Burn Permit. Burn Permits are free, and require an inspection of the burn site by the Chief or a designated Fire Department Officer.

To familiarize yourself with the requirements the Burn Permit form can be found here:
