Please be aware that the following development approvals are eligible for an 8-month extension, but only if the required notice is given prior to November 10, 2011:
• a development order issued by a local government;
• a building permit;
• a permit issued by the Department of Environmental Protection or a water management district pursuant to Part IV of chapter 373; and
• the buildout date of a DRI, including any extension of a buildout date that was previously granted pursuant to s. 380.06(19)(c).
Under Florida’s new Governmental Reorganization Act, the approvals listed above can be extended when the Governor declares a state of emergency. Because Governor Scott declared a wildfire emergency covering the entire State on June 13, 2011, permit holders that give the required notice are entitled to an 8-month extension under the Act. Notice must be given no later than November 10, 2011.
