Step One: Submit an Application
The first step to getting a building permit is to complete an application form. After we receive your application, our permit technicians will review them for sufficiency. Once your application is approved you will be given a permit number for tracking. When you call or make inquiries online, please refer to the permit number you were given.
Some simple permits (such as residential fences, mechanical change-out, re-roofing) may be issued over the counter at the time we receive your application. Other structural permits usually require plan review before they can be issued.
Step Two: Supply Plans and Specs
Once your application has been approved you may supply building plans & specs for review. You can submit paper hard copies or upload them online.
- Include a transmittal cover sheet that lists your permit number and contact information.
- Each plan sheet must be signed & sealed by the design professional. We cannot accept printed versions of digital signatures (such as CoSign or Identrust).
- Submit only one (1) set of plans & specs. We no longer require 3 copies.
- Drop off or mail your hardcopies to: Permitting Dept, 1 Courthouse Sq, Suite 1400, Kissimmee, FL 34741.
