Mission: The Growth and Resource Management Department exists to provide a better quality of life for all Volusia County residents by facilitating the development of a well-designed, efficient, healthy and safely built environment that enhances community identity, coexists with the natural environment, and promotes sustainable development.
All commercial as well as residential building, planning and environmental applications are online and can be submitted electronically.
Connect Live is the county’s online application and information source for growth management. Anyone can research properties, contractors, and permits, or even submit a code violation complaint. Licensed contractors can apply for building permits while other users can submit applications that do not require a contractor. All registered users can check the status of their applications, make payments, and schedule inspections. Click here to see what you can do online!
On December 6, 2012, the County Council unanimously adopted Resolution 2012-155 supporting Central Florida's "Open for Business" initiative to promote business climate, great service, job creation and business investment by streamlining the permitting process and other action steps.
