Welcome to Dolores!

The Town of Dolores is a great place to live whether you are coming to find a quiet place to retire or looking for a safe place to raise your family.  There are approximately 30 acres of parks and openspace that includes ball fields, play grounds, trails and fishing access.  Not to mention the endless amount of public lands at your fingertips.  We have a wonderful school system that includes pre-school through twelfth grades as well as the new Public Library, re-built in 2005. 

If you are just moving or thinking of relocating there are some things you should know.  The Town operates the water and sewer services so you will need to stop by Town Hall to get those services changed to your name.  We are located at 420 Central Avenue or give us a call (970) 882-7720.  Empire Electric will provide your electric service and Century Link will provide phone and internet as does Charter Communications and now high speed wireless from Zumacom.  There are also a few dish choices to choose from.  Trash service is provided through  Waste Management or Countryside Disposal 970-565-8180 ( sorry no link yet).  Natural gas is provided by Atmos Energy.

It is also important to remember that you are moving to the mountains, which means its snow country so do not forget your shovel.  The Town plows roads but does not plow driveways nor remove berms resulting from its plowing efforts.

We do have a building code (2006 IBC) which will require an approved building permit prior to any construction.  other regulations we adhere to are the Flood Damage Prevne Please stop by Town Hall to pick up forms and to have your questions answered.
