Town Expands Permitting Hours


This temporary change in hours will start Monday, Jan. 9th and is expected to last through March 29th. Town staff will be available on Town Hall’s temporary complex at 2545 Estero Boulevard which is the property just south of the Town Hall building that was damaged by Hurricane Ian.

New Hours Starting Monday
– Monday-Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
–  Saturday, 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

One of the biggest complaints from residents has been the permitting process and how cumbersome its become for them to get the permits they need to rebuild. A town press release states that, “the intent of this extension of hours is to provide higher levels of service and speed to storm-damage related permitting. During this extended schedule, customers will have access to Community Development staff for permitting assistance by email, telephone, and in-person at the Town Hall Complex.”

To reach the Permitting Department, email or call 239-765-0202 Option #2.

An extensive list of frequently asked questions about permitting is available on the Building Services webpage which is a great place to start to get questions answered.
