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.

The Building Division operates under the current Florida Building Codes as adopted by the State of Florida requirements of Chapter 553, Florida Statutes which can be accessed online at
