Building Department

A Building Permit is required for all new construction, any alteration, replacement or removal of any existing structure of any discipline in accordance with the Florida Building Code. Disciplines include structural, electrical, plumbing and mechanical (A/C). The Building Division provides many services to residents, builders and contractors; enabling the City to maintain high standards of building integrity and to preserve neighborhood property values. Staff is available to assist and guide homeowners and contractors through the permit process on new construction, renovations and adding to an existing structure.

Things to Remember

Here are a few things to remember when having construction work done in or around your home or business. Hire licensed, insured and reputable contractors. Get a minimum of 3 quotes before signing a contract. Request references, licenses and insurance information for each contractor. Verify licenses with the Florida DBPR. Verify and track your permit via E-Services, Permit Status & Records.
