Here is some planning & zoning info:
This property can be used for recreational camping 14 days a year. It can also be used for a permanent residence. The County requires a minimum 600 sq. ft. dwelling size and a well or holding tank, septic and solar (or wind) power system before issuing a building permit. Using a Travel Trailer or RV full time is not allowed in the state of Colorado. You can however apply for up to 3 camping permits (120 days) per year as long as you have septic and a water source.
The property has no utilities on site. The average well depth in the San Luis Valley Ranches ranges from 100-200 feet, drilling can cost in the range $35-45 per foot. A money saving option: to start out, or if you’re just using your land for vacation, you can haul your own water. You can fill a 500 gallon tank at the Alamosa Water Dept. for a few dollars. Septic systems can cost $3,000-4,000 on average.
The nearest power poles are to the homestead directly to the west of the property. Those power poles are about 500-1000 ft from the western boundary. The San Luis Valley has the strongest solar power resources in the state, the highest per capita concentration of home-based solar energy systems in the United States. The cost of solar system kits start at around $1000.
Propane is often used for cooking, refrigerator and heat. Propane is delivered throughout the valley. Most people also use wood stoves for heating. Abundant cheap firewood is available in the local forest.
