The Central Permitting Division is responsible for issuing and reviewing the following property development applications:

  • Property Development Permits
  • Environmental Health Permits
    • Site Evaluations
    • Mobile Home Parks
    • Wells
  •  Building Permits
    • Single-Family Residences
    • Manufactured Homes
    • Commercial Structures
    • Signs
    • Pools
    • Accessory Buildings
  • Electrical Permits
  • Plumbing Permits

All Property Development Permits must be acquired through the Central Permitting Office. The Central Permitting staff will review all permit applications for compliance with flood elevations, zoning, subdivision, CAMA, fire, contractor licensing, stormwater and other local regulations. Property Development Technicians conveniently assist the public through every stage of the property development process making more efficient use of resources and personnel in other departments. The system enables the public to obtain permits more quickly than ever before. This computerized system allows most county permitting functions to be consolidated into a comprehensive information and permitting station and is one of the most innovative and advanced systems in the state.
