The Building and Zoning Department is responsible for the local administration and enforcement of the Florida Building Code and the Town’s Land Development Code. These responsibilities cover new construction, renovations, remodels, repairs, and additions to existing buildings. The review and permitting process provides a means to protect current and future residents by making sure that structures are constructed properly. Departmental duties also include review of applications and plans for code compliance, permit issuance and inspection of work.
The Building Official is also responsible for making sure that structures are compliant with FEMA regulations and construction sites have properly mitigated impacts to stormwater run-off.
Any requests for building inspections should be made to the Building Department by 2:00 pm for an inspection on the next business day.
