Let’s say I wanted to build a deck near a steep slope (which I know is regulated) how far back from the edge should I build?
Thank you for the questions! Hope that helped.
Thank you Ken! I hope everyone found that useful. Tune in next month on October 21 for another Ask the Expert event.
Thanks … great forum for enquiries. A productive concept … hope it continues.
Such great questions! Does anyone else have anything they want to ask Ken before we wrap up? Last chance!
Michael – removing tree limbs is not a Regulated activity by CVC and therefore no approval from us is required.
Aurora – it is best to contact CVC staff to determine if any additional agency should be contacted. CVC can only comment as to whether a CVC permit would be required.
riverrunner – if the application is denied, the applicant can reapply.
riverrunner – CVC Regulations staff try to work with the landowner to get the permit to come into conformity with CVC policy through the permit process. If this cannot be accomplished the application can be appealed to CVC’s Board of Directors. If denied there, the application can be appealed to the Mining and Lands Commissioner.
Does removing tree limbs that came down in the big ice storm, in a generic regulation area require a permit?
I’m not sure if you answered my question yet, I don’t see it. Is there something I can refer back to that explains permits and the different agencies that issue them?
Michael – if the proposal falls within the “generic regulation area” it does mean CVC must be consulted. Depending on the location of where the proposal falls determines whether or not staff can support the application.
so if an application for a permit is denied, is there an opportunity to re-apply with modifications or is it a one shot deal?
Does generic regulation area mean that CVC needs to be consulted, but may approve building on the area?
