DENVER, Colorado – Denver issued more than 1,200 free building permits for nearly $6.3 million in home renovations during a two-week program to boost construction.

Mayor John Hickenlooper said Tuesday the building permits would normally have cost a total of nearly $86,000.
The permits were available for remodeling existing kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms or basements; repairing or replacing roofs; making energy improvements such as adding insulation, replacing water heaters, furnaces or air conditioners or installing solar panels; and making exterior stucco or siding changes.
The permits are valid for 180 days.
