The Building Department receives building permit applications for all structures ranging from office buildings to homes to fences and reviews the construction plans to assure that they meet the requirements of the Florida Building Codes, other ordinances in effect including contractor licensing, floodplain management, and maintains all pertinent records. Field inspections of buildings are conducted to make sure they are being constructed in accordance with approved plans and all applicable codes.
The Building Department provides many services to the public, builders and contractors. It is the department's goal to preserve our neighborhoods and property values by maintaining high standards of competence and service. Staff is available to assist and guide homeowners and contractors through the permitting and inspection processes for all new construction, remodeling and additions to existing structures.
The Building Department is responsible for reviewing permit applications to ensure all necessary documents are included.
