                               "PERMITTING 101"

                  BEFORE YOU START A PROJECT

The Town Hall tries to keep our citizens informed, involved, and up-to-date on newly passed
Ordinances, Resolutions, or other county or state laws that have an impact on how we all conduct our day-to-day business. Still, residents often say they are not aware of certain Code changes or Resolutions passed by the Commission that may be applicable to them, whether it is permitting, requesting a variance hearing, or having what may be classified as a "special event or activity."

Don't be caught in a tricky situation! When in doubt, call the Town Hall or stop by to ask if you need a permit, a variance, or just to confirm that none is needed. This is especially important for any work done that may need approval by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection or the St. John's River Water Management District!
Nearly ALL exterior work needs a building permit, whether it is replacement windows, installation of a new HVAC unit, a new roof, or an addition to an existing structure. Residents of Surfside Estates have additional community guidelines and should check with the office.

There are "setback" restrictions throughout Beverly Beach, and those guidelines are
different for Surfside Estates
. Often, if a homeowner wishes to erect a fence, a variance hearing may be necessary due to the width of the lot and the width of the setback restrictions.

Interior work MAY need a building permit, depending on the scope of the work. Generally, ALL electrical, HVAC, and plumbing work must be permitted. Extensive interior renovations will probably require permitting and inspection.

Any event that is open to the public in which you anticipate attendance in excess of 100 people, OR you will have amplified sound, OR there is a reasonable anticipation of needing traffic control, sanitary facilities, or health and fire inspections will most likely require an Application for a Special Event/Activity which requires an application fee and hearing before the Commission 60 days in advance of the event.

The Town is gradually moving forward and the Town Commission and Mayor are working toward a goal of more effectively abiding by and being guided by our Charter and Code. Again - stay informed and when in doubt, just give us a call or stop by! By being proactive, the Town's daily workings will run smoothly and further enhance this great little piece of the world called Beverly Beach.

Copies of all Ordinances, Resolutions, Planning and Zoning Hearings, and Commission Meetings are available for inspection or copying at the Town Hall during normal working hours. Just ask!
