Sign permits are required for most signs in Woodland Park. The City adopted a new sign code on April 1, 2010 (PDF). Please consult the sign code and the educational brochures below for guidance on when permits are required and what is allowed in terms of types and sizes of signs.
For those signs that require a Zoning Development Permit (ZDP), it is necessary to complete and submit a sign permit application to the City of Woodland Park and have it approved prior to installing the sign. In some cases, there may be structural elements of a sign (such as in a free-standing and/or a lighted sign) where a Building Permit or an Electrical Permit may also be required. Please call the Planning and Building Department at 719-687-5202 to inquire about this possibility.
See the Official Zoning Map (PDF) for properties within city limits.
This is a 2-step process - the first step is to complete the 2020 Multi-Use ZDP Application (PDF) and submit to the Planning and Building Department. We have hard-copies available at City Hall as well. This will be reviewed for conformance to setback requirements in your zoning district.
The second step is to submit your construction drawings (can be a homeowner-drawn sketch) to the Pikes Peak Regional Building Department. This can be done by submitting your plans to the Woodland Park Planning and Building Department at City Hall for routing down to Pikes Peak Regional Building Department (PPRBD), or you can submit directly to PPRBD to expedite the process. They are located at 2880 International Circle in Colorado Springs. You can always call PPRBD at 719-327-2880 if you have any questions regarding this process. For specific submittal requirements, you can download the PPRBD Residential Deck Plan guideline (PDF) for all the document submittal requirements and example.
Download and complete the 2020 Multi-Use ZDP Application (PDF) and submit to the Planning and Building Department. We have hard-copies available at City Hall as well. Note that sheds over 200 square feet will require a Plan Review and Building Permit through the Pikes Peak Regional Building Department. Call us at 719-687-5202 for additional information.
Begin by calling our City Planner at 719-687-5209 to discuss your business idea to make sure that what you want to do would be allowed in your zoning district. Our City Planner will advise you on the next steps to take.

Perhaps the most important thing to remember about 911 is when to use it. It is not meant to be used to contact the Police Department about routine matters. 911 is to be used solely to report emergencies.
An emergency is when immediate Police, Fire Department or Paramedic assistance is absolutely necessary to protect life or property.
We have a limited number of incoming 911 lines for the entire city. One major incident (such as a large fire or major traffic accident) will cause numerous lines to ring. Those lines get tied up quickly. If we are taking your non-emergent call on the 911 emergency line, real emergency callers may be forced to wait before we can get help to them.
We recommend that you program the 10-digit non-emergency number, 719-687-9262, into your cellular phone for quick use. However, if your call in an emergency, please dial 911. The 911 system is an emergency network that has an enhanced design, making it possible for dispatchers answering the phone to receive the address and phone number of the phone making the 911 call. This information is useful when attempting to verify an emergency or the location of a caller who needs help.

For potholes on Highways 24 or 67, please contact the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) at www.cdot.gov.
The City begins street sweeping in late spring after all the snow melts. The streets are swept as needed, before City parades and street events, and when excess sand is reported. Please give the sweeper plenty of distance because it does throw debris.
The City clears snow from sidewalks that are routes to schools, as well as those associated with City parks, buildings, and grounds. The City does not clear snow from private property.
The City starts plowing when snow accumulation reaches 4 inches.
First priority routes are main streets (emergency access) and school access routes. Second priority routes include side streets and sidewalks. Third priority routes are alleys, cul-de-sacs and parking lots. Finally, plows continue slushing, sanding, and applying ice slicer.
Please shovel or plow the snow from your driveway to the SIDE of your driveway onto your yard, NOT into the City street. In accordance with Colorado State law and City municipal code, it is unlawful to push snow into City right-of-way. Additionally, the City is not responsible for clearing the windrow left by plows at the end of your driveway along the street. We suggest clearing your driveway AFTER the plow goes through. Please refer to the City’s Snowplow Policy for more information.
Teen Court is a unique justice program for first time offenders of misdemeanor crimes. It is designed to give youth between the ages of 11 and 18 who have broken the law and admitted their guilt, a second chance.
Teen Court is based on the philosophy that a youthful violator is more profoundly impacted when a peer jury decides his or her punishment. The ideal outcome is that young people take responsibility for their actions, provide restitution to the victim and community, and give both the juvenile offender and community an active role in solving juvenile crime.
There are approximately 1,800 Youth Courts on 5 continents. The Woodland Park Teen Court was founded in 1994.
Teen Court is the sentencing forum for young first time offenders who have been referred by the Municipal Court and desire a six month deferred prosecution. The jury, consisting of teens, does not decide innocence or guilt: it assesses sentences. The youthful offender who goes before the teen panel, must plead guilty along with parental or guardian consent. Following teen court sentencing, the offender must complete all elements of his or her sentence successfully prior to dismissal of the original charge with no conviction.
School administrators and teachers are asked to nominate teens for participation in Teen Court. Teens may also nominate themselves. Parents/guardians must consent to the teens’ participation. Mandatory training sessions are held each semester for all interested teens. Teens appointed as attorneys are assigned an adult attorney mentor to assist them in trial preparation. Previously sentenced teens are added to the peer jury pool.
Sentences imposed by teen juries must include community service and participation in future Teen Court sessions as jurors. Sentences may also include restitution to the victim, letters of apology, remedial classes (theft, alcohol education, etc.) and essays. Sentencing is intended to be constructive, and to involve the defendant actively in the community as well as in future Teen Court sessions.
Teen Court is held in the Courtroom located in the City Hall Complex. Teen Court can be reached by email, or you can contact her by telephone at 719-687-9262.
About ⅔ comes from local wells, springs and streams. About ⅓ comes from Woodland Park’s shares in canal and reservoir companies. Woodland Park pays Colorado Springs to deliver this water through Colorado Springs’ Homestake Pipeline.
The range is 60 milligrams per liter (mg/L) to 110 mg/L. 1 mg/L = parts per million.
Grains per gallon (grs/gal) range is 3.5 grs/gal to 6.43 grs/gal.
No, but the level of naturally occurring fluoride in the water is 1.2 to 1.6 parts per million (ppm), a little over the concentration recommended to help reduce tooth decay, but well below the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and State Health department maximum, 4.0 ppm.
All wastewater discharged to the municipal sewer system is treated at the City’s treatment facility located along Highway 67 at the north and of the golf course. Treated wastewater is discharged to Trout Creek, a tributary of the South Platte River.
