Drop-Off Plan Review

The drop-off submittal is a plan review process option that is available to everyone. Customers wishing to submit plans as a drop-off may do so by obtaining a ticket on the 1st floor of City Hall between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. Tickets are called and served at the permit counter on the second floor of City Hall. For more information, click here.

A process number will be issued when plans are submitted to permitting clerk staff. Two (2) sets of signed and sealed plans securely bound, a permit application, and a routing sheet, are required for a drop-off submittal.

Plans to correct a violation need to be processed as a drop-off. They can’t be processed as a walk-through.

The City of Miami Beach Development Review Departments (which include the Building, Fire Prevention, Planning & Zoning, and the Public Works Departments) strive for 21-day turnaround time on all drop-off plan reviews.

DERM Electronic Plan Review

Projects that are required to have DERM plan review approval will be submitted electronically by the Building Department. We will convert them to digital format and upload them to Miami-Dade County for review.
