Types of Elevator Permits & Schedule

The Village reviews permits for all new elevators, including residential elevators, and issues certificates of operation after they have passed final inspections. All elevators located on commercial, institutional and multi-family properties are also inspected on a bi-annual basis. The Village contracts with the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG) Elevator / Escalator Safety Inspection Program to provide these services.
