The Community Development department for the Village of Ruidoso includes Planning and Zoning and Inspections. The Village is responsible for permitting and inspecting electrical, building, mechanical and plumbing within the Village limits and the surrounding Lincoln County area. The department also works to ensure that the all projects comply with Village zoning ordinances.

Building Permits & Forms

Permits are required to ensure that works meets minimum safety codes and standards. The permitting process also allows the Village to determine whether or not the project is in a flood zone. Village of Ruidoso Inspectors issue permits for all residential and commercial structures. Visit our Building, Permits & Inspections page

Inspections

If you do work without a permit, it may affect your ability to sell your property at a future date as lenders often request proof of inspections for any changes made to a building. The Village of Ruidoso Inspectors must inspect all construction projects for both residential and commercial structures.
