Construction Season FAQs


By Town of Frederick Police, Engineering, Building and Planning Staff

With warm weather rapidly approaching, construction activity has been increasing. Here are some of the questions that come up from time to time and may be of interest to you.

Q: There’s construction near my home and there’s a lot of dust blowing. What can be done to minimize the dust?
A: Every construction site that is affecting 1 acre or more is required to have an erosion control permit issued from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. While the permit is issued from the State, the Town’s Chief Building Official works with contractors to maintain compliance. Please contact the Chief Building Official at
720.382.5605 with questions or concerns.

Q: The construction activity site is tracking mud into the street. Can you please get this cleaned up?
A: Construction sites are required to keep adjacent street clean. Residents can contact either the Chief Building Official at 720.382.5605 or the Community Service Officers at 720.652.4222 to address the issue.

Q: What hours can construction activity occur?
A: The municipal code allows work to be conducted between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.

Q: There’s a lot of construction traffic in my neighborhood. Can you make them use a specific street?
A: The Town requires contractor to use designated haul routes for heavier truck traffic and residents can call the Chief Building Official at 720.382.5605 with concerns.

Q: Construction workers are parking in front of my home. Can you stop this from occurring?
A: In some instances, contractors obtain a right-of-way permit that allows them to control parking along a portion of the street. In other instances, construction employees park along the public right-of-way. Normally parking in the right-of-way on a public street is open to anyone. Contact the Chief Building Official at 720.382.5605 or someone in the Engineering Department at 720.382.5500 to determine if the Town can require or possibly ask the
contractor to restrict parking.
