Collier County Publishes how to Extend Building Permits/Development Orders
Senate Bill 360, as passed during the 2009 legislative session and signed by the Governor on June 1, 2009 extends up to two years the expiration date of local government-issued development orders or building permits that have an expiration date of September 1, 2008 through January 1, 2012.
To receive this extension, the holder of a valid, qualifying permit/development order must notify the authorizing government agency in writing no later than December 31, 2009. You must identify in your notice the specific permit/development order you intend to extend and your anticipated timeframe for acting on the extended permit/development order.
If the applicant does not meet the provisions of SB 360, a written response will be provided indicating the reason(s) for the denial.
To Obtain the Extension:
1) The permit/development order must expire between September 1, 2008 and January 1, 2012.
2) You must notify the government agency who issued you the permit no later than December 31, 2009 of your intent to extend.
3) The notice must be in writing and on the following forms located on the Collier County website
a. For Development Orders, “Intent for Extension of Development Order under Senate Bill 360” application
b. For Building Permits, “Commercial Permit Extension Form”
4) To obtain the actual extension, you must submit a “Request for Extension” and submit along with the required fee before the expiration date of your permit/development order. (Other forms available if for Conditional Use or PUD Extensions)
5) You will receive an approval letter showing the extended expiration date.
