How do I locate an easement?

The City of Manitou Springs is not responsible for tracking, monitoring, or enforcing easements; this is performed by El Paso County. It is possible the City may have some documentation regarding easements in the Planning Department’s property files, but it not guaranteed. These files are public record and may be viewed in the Planning Department Office. If you would like copies of any of the documents located in the property files, you will need to fill out a Colorado Open Records Act Request with the City Clerk’s Office. 

The best option for locating easement information is to check with the El Paso Clerk and Recorder’s Office (1675 W. Garden of the Gods Road, Colorado Springs), as this is where easements are filed.
