About Development Services
The Development Services Department oversees the Planning & Zoning, Building, and Code Enforcement Divisions. The Department provides customer friendly services including the review, processing, and issuance of permits and assurance that construction complies with all applicable codes.
- In the Summer of 2015, the Development Services Department held a series of Focus Group discussions to address the City’s building permit review process. The result is a Focus Group Action Plan proposed to address the comments and feedback received from those meetings. An illustration summarizing the Department’s Action Plan can be found by clicking this link Focus Group Results.
- Effective September 23rd, 2014 the City of Coral Gables now requires a tree survey and tree protection plan when applying for an application for Development Review Committee and Board of Architects. (Resolution 2014-200)
- Effective September 11, 2014, the City Commission clarified that the following specific roof tiles are not required to be cleaned: handmade clay, cap and pan tile; or copper roofing materials. The purpose is to allow these roofing materials to age naturally. Please be advised that these roofing materials must still be maintained so that no vegetation is established. Details of this policy is attached. (Resolution 2014-184)
