Category: Advisory Announcement
COVID-19 Virus Information
This advisory announcement is to notify the construction industry that the Charlotte County Community Development Department is conducting business as usual but are asking for your help in limiting exposure to COVID-19. Our lobby is open but we’d ask that you would consider using our Citizen Access Portal and online permitting at www.charlottecountyfl.gov if possible. We realize that this may not be an option to some so if you must come into the office to conduct business to please make sure you are not sick and showing symptoms of COVID-19.
When scheduling inspections in occupied residential dwelling units (single family, duplex, apartments, condos, etc), please ask the occupant of the dwelling if they are sick or showing symptoms of COVID-19 before scheduling the inspections. If the Building Inspectors see that the occupants are sick they will cancel the inspection and not enter the dwelling. The contractor will need to make arrangements to reschedule the inspection when the occupants are healthy.
The Construction Industry Licensing Board and Code Enforcement Board meetings have been cancelled for April.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in these matters. Please visit the County website for future notifications on levels of service and operations as decisions on the matter are happening quickly.
