Easements Through County Properties
Request for easements across County Roads and/or through County property must be approved in advance by the Board of County Commissioners at a regularly scheduled meeting. These requests must be accompanied by a completed easement package which must include a detailed map and diagram showing the easement path and affected areas. You can download a MS Word copy of the Easement Form and Instructions
here. These completed forms should be returned with the necessary maps to 251 16th Street, Suite 201, Burlington, CO 80807 prior to your scheduled meeting. Please call Paula at 719-346-8139 ext. 304 to coordinate your filing with the Commissioners' schedules. You do not need to be in attendance to present this information to the Board. Once the Board has approved the request, the easement is filed with the County Clerk at no cost.
