Denver, CO asked in Land Use & Zoning for Colorado

Q: I run a 501c3 with horses on a 6 acre rural residential property in Douglas Co. Do I need a permit? Please advise?

I have a difficult neighbor who took me to court. I have a court order stating that I cannot operate the nonprofit outdoors. So, I'm looking to build a small indoor arena. I know my neighbor will do all she can to hinder my efforts, so I want to make sure I have all my legal ducks in a row.
