At the July 15 Daytona Beach City Commission meeting, commissioners approved the extension of the waiving of commercial and residential permit fees from Wednesday, June 24, through Friday, Aug. 21, as part of the city’s COVID-19 Assistance Recovery Effort (CARE) program. The waiving of the permit fees does not waive impact fees or the need to apply for a permit.
Previously, the permit fees had been waived for a 90-day period from March 25 through June 23. During the 90 days, a total of 1,771 permits were issued for a total valuation of $136.7 million. The amount of fees waived was $808,045.
Permits and Licensing at City Hall, which is located at 301 S. Ridgewood Ave., is open to the public and is taking walk-ins. For more information, call P&L at (386) 671-8178 for assistance.
Improvements on MLK Road Project almost complete
The stretch of roadway on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard from Orange Avenue to International Speedway Boulevard has reopened after receiving its final paving. New decorative sidewalks and streetlight poles have been installed, and all underground utilities have been replaced, which was some of the oldest infrastructure in the city. In the coming weeks, crews will complete the decorative sidewalks after the wooden poles are removed, and the roadway will have its final striping.
