A building permit is required for most building projects. Discuss your plans with City staff or email us before beginning any work.
9/28/2020 UPDATE TO BUILDING PERMIT APPLICATION PROCESS
As of September 28, 2020, the City of Orange City Building Permit Department is open for full service. As such, the temporary provision determined by the Chief Building Official allowing for the emailing of permit applications and documentation has been revoked, effective immediately. All permitting must now be done via our standard outlets, (i.e. courier drop-off or mail-in applications).
Please note that Florida Statue 553 provides the building department 30 working days from acceptance of completed single family residential applications, and 45 working days from acceptance of completed commercial applications for review. As such, please be informed that in regards to any requests received on the status of a permit prior to the 31st or 46th day respectively after application, the permit shall be considered “in review”, and no additional information shall be given at that time. Staff shall notify all applicants by phone or in writing when their application has been approved, and shall notify the applicant in writing of any requests for additional information or permit denials.
