CERTIFICATE OF OCCUPANCY
In order to ensure the issuance of a Certificate of Occupancy in a timely manner, Contractors/Owner-Builders should meet with the C.O. Clerk one week prior to calling for Final C.O. Inspections. The clerk will provide him/her with a computer printout of all outstanding inspections and paperwork.
The following inspections must be scheduled (if applicable) when you schedule your Final Structural for a Certificate of Occupancy. If you need to contact a department directly you may call:
Note: A C.O. will not be issued on the same day the Final inspections are scheduled. It should be available within 24-48 hours after Final inspections and required paperwork has been approved.
A Certificate of Occupancy may be issued while the pool is still under construction with an approved safety barrier. A safety barrier must be provided around all swimming pools, per FBC 424.17.1 and City Ordinance Section 5-129 and Florida Statutes Chapter 515
