In accordance with the Colorado Open Records Act (CORA), the City of Colorado Springs is happy to assist with requests for the City’s public records. As permitted under Colorado State Law, the City does charge a nominal fee for CORA requests.

Requests should be as detailed as possible including date, type of record, etc. If the document name is unknown, provide brief, but specific description of the document or information requested (note date of issuance and location of the document, if known). A request which is broad, vague, or too voluminous may cause a delay in the time it takes to produce the records.

If the records are available pursuant to C.R.S. 24-72-201 et seq., the records shall be made available for inspection within three working days of receipt of the request. If extenuating circumstances exist, the period may be extended up to an additional seven working days. The requestor will be notified of the extension within the first three days of receipt of the request by the City of Colorado Springs.

For more details about requests and procedures, read the City's CORA Policy.
