The Community Development Department is here to assist in providing the most professional service to our public. The Department processes all building permit applications, lien search reports, site development plans, rezonings, variances, and other requests relating to planning and zoning.
Building Permit Forms
Building permits are required for the construction/renovation of most buildings and structures. Almost anything constructed on or attached to the ground or attached to something located on the ground is considered a structure, including fences, walls, antennas, and pools.
Other projects requiring a permit are accessory buildings (i.e., storage sheds, playhouses, etc.), roof repair/installation, airconditioner installation, and driveways.
If you are unsure of whether your project requires a building permit, before erecting or constructing anything on your property, you should first consult with Community Development Department at (863) 291-5748.
The Community Development Department also performs lien searches for any property in the City of Lake Alfred. The search performed includes any outstanding debts to the City of Lake Alfred including fines imposed by the Code Enforcement Special Magistrate as well as past due utility accounts.
