Building Division

Thank you for taking the time to visit our site and allowing us to assist you in your project. As the Building Division, we are committed in providing you with the tools and assistance you and your team needs in order to help get your project moving. The Building Division is responsible for taking in permit applications, administering the permit review process, issuing permits, performing inspections and issuing certificates of occupancy. 

We have been working on converting our permitting and inspection process over to the digital era. You will find this process to be a time saver and allow you and your team to submit for permitting, schedule inspections, pay applicable fees, print permit cards, and print out a completed Certificate of Occupancy at your convenience.

COVID-19 Procedure Changes


Our physical offices are currently closed to the public until further notice, but we're still working to keep as normal of a schedule as possible. As we work to keep projects moving forward while keeping our customers and staff safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made some changes to our standard procedures.


Digital Permitting


As part of these changes, we ask that you submit all permitting packages, including all site plans, via our online permitting portal.

Please visit our Online Permitting Site here, and follow the below instructions to get started:

  1. Click on the tab labeled: “Request Login”
  2. Fill out the information requested. Please make sure to complete all lines, and then click "Submit."
  3. At that point, an email will be sent to the Building Division. We will create an account for you and send you an email with your user name and temporary password.
  4. Once you receive the email, you may then log in to your account by entering the provided username and temporary password on the CPSS site.
  5. When you log in, you will be prompted to reset your password.
Once you have completed this process you will be able to submit for permitting through the CPSS online permitting system. You will also be able to make payments, check plans review statuses, schedule inspections, and check inspection results.  If you have any issues with registering please contact our office at (407) 260-3464 or (407) 260-3463, and one of our permit specialists will assist you.

Optional Hard Copy Submittals


 If you still wish to submit in hard copy form, we have placed a permit drop box at our front office door. Please place the complete package, secured together in the drop box. This box will be checked each day. Please understand that the time frame for processing hard copy forms will be delayed so we can properly disinfect the packages prior to handling.

Payments


As for payments, we are requesting that all customers utilize a credit card for payment. We can process your credit card payment over the phone, or if you register on our Online Permitting System, it can be processed there. If you still wish to submit payment via cash or check, there is a drop slot in our front office door for receiving these payments. If you wish to submit cash or check payment, you will need to place the payment in a sealed envelope and write the applicable permit number and address on the front of the envelope. We will not be responsible for taking cash or check payments that are not properly sealed in an envelope, and not properly labeled with the permit number and address

Inspections


We will still be providing inspection services as normal, but if you wish to delay your inspection please contact our office and request that your inspection be canceled. Our inspectors will be utilizing proper PPE, and sanitizing equipment between inspections. They will also be asking each occupied structure's occupants whether any persons have been sick, or if they wish to re-schedule their inspections. If you wish to re-schedule your inspection(s), please contact the inspection request line to schedule when you deem safe.
