Online Permit Application Portal

We are in the process of implementing the new Meritage system - Community Core. You should have received an email notification from Community Core to update your login information on April 9, 2019. If you have not received the email, or did not update your account, please contact us for assistance. 

All active permits and applications have been migrated over, and none of your work or application review process has been lost. 

Note: Please update any bookmarked tabs that you may have to the old system, and do not attempt to use Contractor Connect.

Apply Online: Community Connect

Note: You must use Google Chrome as your internet browser to apply, manage, and pay for permits online. 

Community Connect is designed to make the process of applying, reviewing, obtaining a permit, scheduling and receiving inspections in Snowmass Village easier than ever.
