Regardless of whether you need to obtain a building permit, a right of way permit (Public Works), or a special permit (Planning & Zoning), after you apply for your permit, your drawings and documents need to be uploaded electronically, and will be reviewed that way.
You must first apply online before submitting documents. See previous dropdown for application instructions.
NOTE: Starting 3/31/19, you must leave blank space for a City 'Batch' Stamp.
For drawings & plans to be approved, the City of Miami adds a seal (or stamp) to the upper-right corner of each page within the plan. (This does not refer to text documents such as LOI, applications, notification letters, etc). Please ensure that you leave the upper-right corner blank (empty), per the below sizes:
- 8.5 x 11 plan requires a 2x2 blank (empty) area
- 11 x 17 plan requires a 3x3 blank (empty) area
- 24 x 36 plan requires a 4.5 x 4.5 (empty) area
How to Upload Drawings & Documents
