Planning Division Applications and Documents

All Planning Applications and Documents have been updated to reflect the new Land Development Code and are available in PDF format. However, we are still working on all applications and documents, to ensure ADA Compliance and fillable PDF forms.
For any questions please contact the Planning Division at 239-574-0553.

*COVID-19 update*
All planning applications should be emailed to or and hard copies sent via US Mail.  Once received, the application will be reviewed for completeness and invoiced.  Please be advised that all Vacation of Plat applications require a meeting with Planning Staff prior to submission.

Public hearing fees and application fees can now be paid online.  A tutorial on how to do this can be found here.

The City Council, through Resolution 87-20, allowed for the relaxation of some temporary sign regulations.  Restaurants and food establishments affected by Executive Order 20-71 may now have 2 A-Frame signs.  Additionally, banner permit requirements have also been waived for these types of establishments.
