COVID-19 Building Department Upddate:

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, effective 4/8/2020, permit pickup, issuance and payment will be by appointment only, until further notice. Please contact the Building Department at 321.221.7540 to schedule an appointment. We are limiting public access to the Building Department for the safety of our employees, contractors and residents. 

The Building Department will continue functioning for permitting via email at permitting@cityofrockledge.org, for non-engineered permits, or lobby drop box options. Plan review will continue as normal.  Permit and plan review questions can be answered via phone or email. At this time, regular inspections will continue to take place with the exception of residential interior inspections for occupied dwellings. Residential interior inspections for occupied dwellings, windows, doors, mechanical replacements, etc. are discouraged at this time. Should these type of permits require inspection, the contractor should contact the Building Department at 321.221.7540 to make any and all necessary arrangements to meet current inspection protocol.

Patience and understanding from the public is appreciated as we navigate through this uncertain time together as a community!

PLEASE BE ADVISED:

The Building Department has implemented a drop box outside of the entrance door in the City Hall lobby; please utilize that drop box when at all possible!  Staff will check regularly for submittals.  You may also e-mail documents to permitting@cityofrockledge.org.  We appreciate your cooperation!
