Permitting & Inspections Process
As of October 24th, 2005 all permitting and inspection services for the City of Edgewood were outsourced through an inter-local agreement, to the Orange County Building Department.
‘How’ does the permitting process work?
- Step 1 – Submission of ‘all’ permit applications must be presented to Edgewood City Hall for preliminary review and approval. Depending on the type of permit being applied for depends on if a payment for review will be required. Should you have any questions please contact City Hall, you may reach City Hall staff at 407-851-2920.
- Step 2 – Once the City of Edgewood has performed a preliminary review of the permit application and found it to be in compliance with City code requirements, the application will receive City approval via a zoning stamp and signoff. However, should the permit application require our Engineer’s review the submittal package will then be forwarded to the City Engineer for review and comments.
- Step 3 – Once the application is approved / stamped, the applicant/contractor will then submit the stamped/approved permit application to the Orange County Building Department. The County will issue the actual permit and perform any/all required inspections.
Should you have any questions after reviewing this information, please contact City Hall staff for assistance.
Code of Ordinances
In 2006, the City of Edgewood Code of Ordinances were re-codified into an electronic format. Please click on the link below to search the city code.
The City currently operates with the help of a Special Code Enforcement Magistrate, who is a practicing local attorney. Code violations which are not adequately addressed by the property owner per the code enforcement officer’s direction, are referred to a special hearing. During this hearing, the code enforcement officer and the property owner present their positions on the code violation. After hearing and evaluating both parties input, the Special Code Enforcement Magistrate renders a ruling, which is final.
If you have a question, comment, or wish to report a Code Enforcement issue, please email Code Enforcement Inspector Debbie Cabales, or call her at 407-851-2820.
