On August 29, 2019, Executive Order 19-190 (State of Emergency for Hurricane Dorian) was declared for the entire state of Florida. Executive Order 19-190 was in effect for twenty-three (23) days (See EO 19-206 below), and as such any application for extension under F.S. 252.363 which meets the requirements and is within the geographic area covered by the Executive Order, is eligible for an extension up to twenty-three (23) days plus six (6) months.

On September 20, 2019, a termination (Executive Order 19-206) was declared for Hurricane Dorian.

SEPTEMBER 21, 2019 – DECEMBER 20, 2019

Requests for this extension will only be accepted during this period of time. Requests received outside of this window for notification will not be processed.

The length of the tolling and the six month extension is 23 days and six months.


  1. Written Notice. As required by State Statutes, the County shall be notified in writing within 90 days after the termination of the emergency declaration (September 21, 2019 – December 20, 2019). This notice must identify the specific permit or other authorization qualifying for the extension. Please include the original written notice with your application.
  2. Ownership Affidavit. In addition to written notice, an application and an ownership affidavit must be completed and submitted. 
  3. Corporate Ownership Articles of Incorporation, or recent copy of the Annual Report listing Authorized Signatory. A copy may be obtained from the Florida Department of State, Division of Corporations (Sunbiz.org). As this document is used to confirm the authorized signatory on the Ownership Affidavit, said signatory must be listed by name.
  4. Certificate Level of Service (CLOS) approval document. Most recent copy.
  5. Latest approval document. Showing approval date and expiration.
  6. Any other extension approval document, if applicable.
  7. Fees. There is a separate fee per approval type (i.e. FSP, PSP, PP, CLOS, etc.)

$425 fee is required per application type 

For example: Site Plan Extension: $425.00
CLOS Extension: $425.00
Total Amount Due: $850.00

Please Note:

Separate applications and ownership affidavits must be submitted for each application type (i.e. PSP, FSP, SP, CLOS, etc.)

Executive Order extensions cannot be combined with any other extension request (House Bill extensions, LDC extensions, etc.)

Development Orders and Zoning Ordinances (PSP, GDP) associated with a Development of Regional Impact (DRI) can be processed under one application and one fee as the build out dates and expiration dates typically run together.

If your request meets the qualifications, an approval letter will be issued showing the extended expiration date. If your request does not meet the provisions of State Statute 252.363, a written response shall be provided indicating the reason(s) for the denial and a refund will not be issued.

No other changes to the previously approved development orders will be reviewed or approved with this request. Please keep in mind that all conditions of the original approval will remain in effect, except if it is demonstrated that the conditions in effect at the time the development order was issued would create an immediate threat to public safety or health.
