Building Department


In the interest of public health, and in the compliance with CDC and State of Florida guidelines, The Building Department will not perform any inside inspections in occupied residences.  During this period, all permits will be automatically extended.

Permit applications for interior remodel work can be review and approved, but will not be issued until such time that we can perform progress inspections.



Our mission is to safeguard the health, safety, and welfare of City residents and the business community through the enforcement of building codes and standards. To this end, we issue building permits based on approvals of plans for residential and commercial projects


The Building Department ensures that certified inspectors:
1. Perform the required inspections in structural, electrical, plumbing, and mechanical trades
2. Schedule and track inspections for the zoning, landscaping, engineering, and fire departments
3. Issue certificates of occupancy
This division also oversees the issuance of waste hauler registrations for the community.
