Development Permit Extension Deadline Approaching

I previously wrote about how the extensions to some development permits that were made available by Governor Scott's executive orders declaring states of emergency due to severe flooding and a tropical storm. Section 252.363, Florida Statutes, provides for deadlines for landowners and holders of these development permits who are seeking to take advantage of these extensions. While one deadline applicable to only a few counties has already passed, the deadline for the Governor's statewide emergency declaration is January 25, 2016. Landowners with eligible development permits should act quickly.
