The Building Code Division is responsible for the administration and enforcement of the Florida Building Code and County ordinances regulating building construction. This is accomplished through the building permit process that includes review and inspection of projects for compliance with building codes.
The Building Code Division also coordinates the building permit “One Stop Review” process. The One Stop process incorporates multiple County development agencies review of building projects through the building permit process providing our customers a single permit and point of contact. These related agencies include project review for Zoning and Land Development regulations, Fire Prevention, and the Natural Resource Management Office.
Proposed changes to the County Code of Ordinances:
County staff is seeking input from persons with interest (stakeholders) in proposed changes to the County code. Stakeholder comments will be considered before moving forward with the formal code amendment and adoption process tentatively scheduled to begin in July. This process includes public hearings before the Building Construction Advisory Committee (BCAC), the Local Planning Agency (LPA), and the Board of County Commissioners.
