My parcel of land is in the middle of nowhere in the mountains and all I want to do is build a basic camping cabin. Why do I have to have a water supply, sewer, a bathroom and a kitchen?
Because Clear Creek County is so close to the Denver metro area, it is a popular location for both full-time residents and those who want a weekend cabin. Our development pattern has shown us that weekend cabins inevitably get increased use, often evolving to full-time residences. In order to protect the health of the cabin users and neighboring property owners, we require living conditions that are protective of individual and public health.
