PERMIT EXTENSIONS  click to view ordinance
On 6/28/11, the Board of County Commissioners adopted Ordinance 2011-17, which extends development permits until January 1, 2016 for permits issued by Seminole County that carry an expiration date between September 1, 2008 and December 31, 2015.  Development Permits, defined in Florida Statute 380.04, include: site plans, subdivision plans, master plans, building permits, site development permits, special exception approvals, et. al.  

House Bill 7023, a major economic development bill, was signed June 20th and is now law (Chapter 2014-218, Laws of Florida).  One provision of this law extends local building permits:

Section 46. (1) Any building permit, and any permit issued by the Department of Environmental Protection or by a water management district pursuant to part IV of chapter 373, Florida Statutes, which has an expiration date from January 1, 2014, through January 1, 2016, is extended and renewed for a period of 2 years after its previously scheduled date of expiration. This extension includes any local government-issued development order or building permit including certificates of levels of service. This section does not prohibit conversion from the construction phase to the operation phase upon completion of construction. This extension is in addition to any existing permit extension. Extensions granted pursuant to this section; s. 14 of chapter 2009-96, Laws of Florida, as reauthorized by s. 47 of chapter 2010-147, Laws of Florida; s. 46 of chapter 2010-147, Laws of Florida; s. 73 or s. 79 of chapter 2011-139, Laws of Florida; or s. 24 of chapter 2012-205, Laws of Florida, may not exceed 4 years in total.
