Residential Zoning Compliance Certificate
A Zoning Permit is actually a certification of property use.
According to Zoning Ordinance #91-5897, Article C, Section 4, a zoning
permit shall be required for any of the following:
construction or structural alteration of any building, including
change in use of an existing building or accessory building to a use
of a different classification;
occupancy and use of vacant land;
change in the use of land to a use of a different classification;
any change in a nonconforming use.
The Building/Zoning Office requires ten days for review before issuing a
zoning certificate if approved.
On commercial buildings, a zoning compliance certificate is required if
there is a change in building use or tenants or name change on utilities.
An inspection is required for commercial buildings.
