Under the leadership of Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer, the City of Orlando is constantly seeking new ways to make doing business in and with the City of Orlando easier, particularly for our small businesses, which are the backbone of our healthy economy and create new jobs and opportunities for residents.
To further this effort, later this year, the City will launch “Permitting Express,” a new initiative with a dedicated team inside City Hall to provide direction, guidance and advocacy for business owners, property owners, contractors and sub-contractors seeking permits for new and expanding small businesses.
Through Permitting Express, qualifying projects will automatically be placed in a separate queue to be reviewed by the dedicated Permitting Express team, comprised of City staff who are experts at providing guidance to small business clients and helping navigate these types of projects through the permitting process.
The ultimate goal of Permitting Express is to get these small business projects through permitting as quickly as possible by removing barriers, simplifying the process and allowing our customers to build relationships and trust with the dedicated team who will be working on their project from start to finish.
Permitting Express will launch this year. In the meantime, small business owners who have questions about or need help with the permitting process can contact Traci Elliott at 407.246.2803 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
