Downtown Fort Myers Aerial

FORT MYERS, Fla. (September 23, 2021) – The Fort Myers City Council recently voted to cut building permit fees by 25% for one year beginning on October 1, 2021. 

Applicants may request one six-month extension of a building permit subject to the 75% fee reduction approved by the City Council in prior years. Additional permit extensions shall cause forfeiture of the fee reduction, whereby full fees in effect at that time will be assessed prior to issuance of additional extensions. 

Resolution 2021-31 will be automatically repealed on September 30, 2022 unless further extended by the city council.

For more information, please contact the city’s Building, Permitting 

and Inspections division at 239-321-7925 or email mbotsford@cityftmyers.com.
