The Planning, Zoning and Building Department is responsible for the functions of: long- and short- range planning; updating and implementing the Town’s Comprehensive Plan; amending and implementing the Town’s Zoning Code; Site Plan and Subdivision Review; Tree Permitting; Building Permitting; Building Inspections; Building Plans Review; Verification of Contractor Licensing and Insurance; Implementation of FEMA Regulations; and, Implementation of the Florida Statewide Building Code.

The Town’s Zoning Code and the statewide building code were adopted to ensure that development enhances and is compatible with the Key, and is constructed in a manner that protects the public health, safety and welfare. The fact that the Town is located on a barrier island results in additional building code development standards not applicable on the mainland.

The Town has created a new Interactive Online Zoning Map where you can search for a particular parcel to determine its zoning and also link to the property appraiser's website.
