In the Spotlight - Brevard County Transportation Impact Fee Moratorium

 
Brevard County Transportation Impact Fee Moratorium

On, September 6, 2016, the Board of County Commissioners voted to not extend the Transportation Impact Fee Moratorium. Therefore, the Transportation Impact Fee Moratorium will sunset on December 31, 2016. The following criteria must be met to be eligible for an impact fee exemption under the moratorium:

  1. The Building permit must be issued by December 31, 2016.
  2. A Certificate of Occupancy must be issued by December 31, 2017.
  3. For Commercial Development 20,000 square feet and over, a Certificate of Occupancy must be issued by December 31, 2018.

Projects that require site plan approval will need the site plan approved before a building permit can be issued. The County offers a concurrent review process wherein the building permit application can be reviewed concurrently with the site plan review. Please find the concurrent review request form at: Concurrent Code Review Request.pdf

          

Fee Collection Change/Online Permitting

Beginning January 19, 2016 a $25.00 portion of your building permit fees will be due at time of permit application submittal. This is not a fee increase, and the $25.00 will be deducted from the total payment due upon building permit issuance.

The upfront fee collection is part of computer system changes necessary for implementing the County’s new online permitting system known as BASS (Brevard’s Advanced Service Site).

BASS will ultimately be a full service system providing online permitting access 24/7 which allows you:

  • Apply for building permits
  • Upload & download documents
  • Receive application status updates
  • Monitor your applications
  • Pay Fees

The upfront $25.00 fee collection will be accessed on all permit applications, (both walk-in applications and online submittals).

The Building Code Division is responsible for the administration and enforcement of the Florida Building Code and County ordinances regulating building construction. This is accomplished through the building permit process that includes review and inspection of projects for compliance with building codes.

The Building Code Division also coordinates the building permit “One Stop Review” process. The One Stop process incorporates multiple County development agencies review of building projects through the building permit process providing our customers a single permit and point of contact. These related agencies include project review for Zoning and Land Development regulations, Fire Prevention, and the Natural Resource Management Office.
