Permitting Express

The City of Orlando is constantly seeking new ways to make doing business in and with the city easier. We particularly focus on small businesses, which create new jobs for residents and are the backbone of our healthy economy.

As part of this effort, we created Permitting Express in 2017.

The initiative's goal is to remove barriers, simplify the process and allow customers to build relationships with dedicated team members who follow each project from start to finish.

Qualifying projects 5,000 square feet or less are placed in a special queue to be reviewed by the Permitting Express team, which is comprised of employees who are experts at providing guidance to small business clients.
