Class II Permits – City of Miami


Do not let this happen to you!

The gentleman in the photo was attempting to apply for a Class II Permit in the City of Miami and did not follow the procedure. Like everything in government, the process is tedious, bureaucratic and often times absurd, but if you do not follow the exact procedure, every step of the way, you will be turned away.

Class II Basics

The City of Miami has designated areas of the City as “Special Districts”. Some of these districts overlap. You can go to their website and view the zoning map which indicates the special districts but it will probably give you a headache looking at it and trying to figure out if you need to apply for a Class II Permit. The reality is that if what you are doing is downtown, along the Biscayne Boulevard corridor, in the Grove, along Coral Way or Southwest 8th Street, it probably requires a Class II Permit. It would be worth your time to stop at their Zoning Department on the 4th floor of City Hall, and review the location and scope of your project with a Zoning representative.

You need to be aware that a Class II Permit is in addition to the Building Permit and the review process between the two are linked. I would suggest that you bring your Class II Application package with your Building Permit Application to begin the review process.

This is a link to to the City of Miami website and overview on Class II Permits. I am also including a link to their website page with the application form. The form explains the procedure and supporting documents that are required as a part of the submission package. These documents are in addition too the Building Permit documents. As always, if you need any assistance, or would like to have Permit Source handle the application process for you, feel free to contact us.

Once you actually get your application accepted you can track the progress by going the this page.
