Do I need a permit and if so, what is the process?

Whether you are a homeowner or a licensed contractor who wishes to construct or develop within the City of Kissimmee, a permit is often required prior to starting work on your proposed project and can be completed in 5 to 7 simple steps:

Step 1:  Determine whether a permit is required by visiting our Projects that Do Not Require a Permit page.

Step 2:  Select from the following list to determine the type of permit you will need for your project.

Step 3:  Submit the application, applicable documents/plans and review fees.

Step 4:  Staff review to ensure compliance with City/State standards and if applicable comments will be offered.

Step 5:  Once approved, a permit is issued and construction can start.

Step 6:  If applicable, schedule an inspection and obtain approval.

Step 7:  If applicable, obtain a Certificate of Occupancy permit.
