UPDATE: NOTICE OF NO-CONTACT OPERATIONS
Due to required changes to our procedures to address COVID-19 concerns, we are re-routing all calls from the general Community Development main line (239) 444-6150 to voicemail and email which will be distributed to the appropriate staff for processing. If you wish to leave a voicemail directly with a staff member please click the link below to access the “COVID-19 Contact List”. This list provides a direct office or cell phone numbers for staff. For those staff members not included on this list, leave a voicemail.
Please leave the name of the staff member you wish to contact and your contact information. All voicemails will be returned but there will be lengthier delays than normal. Email correspondence will also be received during this time and may be a faster way to communicate with community development staff. The COVID-19 Contact List will also have direct email addresses for your convenience.

NOTICE OF NO-CONTACT OPERATIONS
Consistent with the President’s and the Governor’s directions to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, Community Development Department will be closed to the public until further notice in order to protect our staff while still providing the best level of service possible to our customers. Community Development operations are continuing via phone and email. Please see below or contact us at (239) 444-6150 for assistance.
Community Development Department will be changing how permits and information are submitted and subsequently processed. The current permitting counter located at 9220 Bonita Beach Road, Suite 111 will not be open to the public after 4:30 P.M. March 20, 2020. Permits and other submittals will now be placed in a drop-box located at 9220 Bonita Beach Road, Suite 105. During this period of modification, payments will not be accepted at the time of submittal.
