One Year Building Permit Reprieve

One Year Building Permit Reprieve Ordinance

On April 26, 2017, the City Commission of the City of Miami Beach approved a One Year Building Permit Reprieve Ordinance No. 2017-4088. The program will be effective May 1, 2017 through April 30, 2018. This program establishes a procedure to bring structures built without proper permits or built lacking mandatory inspections into compliance with the Building Code. The One Year Grace Period Program encompasses all work done without a permit as part of a Single Family Residence, Multi-Family, Mixed Use, or Commercial construction projects.

On March 7, 2018, the Mayor and City Commission recommended the extension of the reprieve period by an additional year. This item was approved unanimously at the City Commission on May 16, 2018. The City enacted Ordinance No. 2018-4192 which amended the sunset date from April 30, 2018 through April 30, 2019.
