Permits, Licenses, Inspections

COVID-19:

PERMITS

Due to COVID-19 the Village Hall is currently closed to the public. We have revised our permit submittal/issuance as follows:
Permit applications can be emailed to  developmentservices@orlandpark.org; mailed via USPS, UPS or FedEx; dropped off in the east side silver drop-box located in the circle near the postal box; or dropped off in the east side bin located near the door.

If they are large plans please drop off or mail in, do not email plans larger than an 11x17 size.

Once the application has been reviewed and approved, you will be emailed and given instructions on how to pay over the phone or online. Please note review times are likely to be increased.

Once everything is ready and the permit has been paid, the permit card and paperwork will be emailed to you or dropped off at the job site if there are large plans. If you supply a prepaid UPS or FedEx label, your permit will be mailed to you. If you would prefer to pick up the permit and plans, let us know and your permit will be placed in the bin outside of the east door.

INSPECTIONS

We are not currently accepting inspection requests for interior residences other than remodels or new construction. All other inspections are being completed. For all inspections, if anyone on the job site is ill, please cancel and reschedule. We ask that only one person is present for the inspection and please practice social distancing during the inspection.

As usual, the only way to schedule an inspection is online or email inspectionrequest@orlandpark.org with inspection and permit information. We are not taking inspection requests over the phone.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation during this time. Stay safe!
