Building Division 954-480-4250 **New Permit Applications**
Provides plan review, permits and periodic inspection services to most public and private construction as determined by the Florida Building Code and other applicable laws. The Building Division is responsible for the identification and removal of unsafe structures in conjunction with the Unsafe Structure Board.

Burglar Alarm Permitting/ Registration
Issues permits to residents and business operators who require alarms on their properties. The permitting system is designed to register current information about the building owner and to reduce false alarm calls received by the Broward County Sheriff Office. 

We are in transition of installing a new renewal module.  We apologize for any inconvenience this has created for the renewal process.  The notices will be sent out shortly.  During this transition period, the false alarm charges will not be enforced.  Once this new module is completely set up and running, the renewal letters will be automatically sent out and online payments will be accepted.  Until such time, please renew, in person, at the building department.  Decals, however, will no longer be issued based on the new module. 
To access our alarm registration/renewal form, please click here.

Home Owners (HOA approval)
It is your responsibility to obtain approval from your Home Owners Association before applying for a permit and comply with their requirements.
