2012 Residential Construction and Group Quarters Facility Survey
Dear Conservation Trust Fund Officer,
The Colorado Department of Local Affairs is beginning its process for calculating the July 1, 2012 population estimates that are used in the Conservation Trust Fund (CTF) program. The first phase of this process involves estimates of total housing units and group quarters facilities (such as prisons and dorms). These data will be used as the foundation for your entity's population estimate.
This year we have created a new system to submit residence construction survey via an online tool, the Local Government E-Filing Portal rather than sending a spreadsheet. You will get your unique User ID via an email from our office. If you have not received an email, please contact us (see below).
Please go to https://dola.colorado.gov/dlg_efiling/. After you agree to the term of use, then you will get to the login page. The first time user will get a password by clicking the "First time user or forgot your password?" link and enter the user ID you have received on the password reset screen. The password will be sent to your email. Then you will be able to login to the system using your new password.
Once logged in, you will start at a “contact” page. If the information is correct, click on “continue without changes” or make and “save changes”. On the next page you can see a summary of data submitted for previous years or click on the “Residential Construction Survey” tab where you will be able to submit building permits, certificates of occupancy and demolitions. Click on the Blue” Add Survey” and you will be prompted to select a geography and type of residential data and year. If you have submitted data in previous years, you do not need to submit again for those years, unless there are changes. We are primarily interested in building permits from 2011 or certificates of occupancy from July 2011 through June 2012 but will take the most current data you have.
Please contact us by phone or email if you have any changes in housing units or group quarters due to annexations.
The tables below contain your area’s previous years’ housing unit and group quarters facility data for reference and review.
We need you to review these data and provide any documented 2012 input data by February 22, 2013 for the July 2012 Conservation Trust Fund estimates process. This will be the only time during the estimates process that you will be able to update your residential construction, annexation or group quarters data for the July 2012 Population Estimates.
Please send all data and questions to Deying Zhou, Estimates Demographer, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (303) 866-4989. Please submit all data using the guidelines on the documents below.
Table 1: 2010 Census and 2011 Estimates of Population and Households by County and Municipality. These tables are grouped by county. Please evaluate the number of housing units for your entity and please go to https://dola.colorado.gov/dlg_efiling/ to send us any updates on residential contruction data.
Tables 2: 2010-2014 Residential Construction Data from Local Governments. These tables are grouped by county. Please evaluate the number of housing units for your entity for 2010, 2011 and please go to https://dola.colorado.gov/dlg_efiling/ to send us any updates.
Table 3: July 1, 2011 Estimates of Population and Households by CTF Special District .

If your Special District has had new housing units completed between July 1, 2011 and June 30, 2012, you need to submit that data to us, otherwise we assume your special district is at build out (no change in housing units).
Table 4: Group Quarters Facility List. Please use this table to evaluate the group quarters facilities and population that we have on file for 2011. The data we have is based on what has been previously sent to us by your entity. Use the “Group Quarters Data Spreadsheet” to send us any updates in group quarters population or facility data If we do not receive new information we will carry forward information from the previous year.
Group Quarters Data Spreadsheet : At this time you will not be able to use the online system to submit Group Quarters data. Please use this spreadsheet to submit any updates to group quarters or new group quarter facilities to email@example.com.
