Contractor Services E-Permitting


About E-Permitting

All contractor applied for residential and commercial permits must be submitted electronically via our Contractor E-Permitting Portal. The process will allow for electronic submittal, routing, review, and issuance of approved permits. The portal is simple and convenient to use from the comfort of your home or office. Additionally, it provides tools to track and manage your permit, upload revisions, and download approved documents.

Contractor Log In

Currently, E-permitting services are only available to licensed contractors. Per Florida Statute 489.103(7)(b), all homeowner builder permits must be applied for in-person. Homeowners must personally appear and sign the building permit application and satisfy local agency requirements. Please note the Building Department is actively working on a Homeowner-Builder solution we hope to have released in late 2023.

Please note that E-permitting does not guarantee that a permit will be issued. All submittals are subject to an initial sufficiency review by the permitting in-take staff and then a plan review, prior to issuance. You may not start work until the application has been processed, payment is made, and permit has been issued. Starting work prior to the issuance of a permit may result in penalties and fees.

Getting started with E-Permitting:
