The City of Delray Beach Offers Expedited Permits for Summer Heat Emergencies

DELRAY BEACH, Fla., Aug. 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — To help residents stay comfortable in the summer heat, the City of Delray Beach’s Development Services Department offers an expedited permit process, called “walk through” permits. Walk through permits are available for emergencies such as air conditioning, roof, and water heater repairs or replacements.

“No one should have to live without air conditioning or with a roof in need of repairs, especially in the extreme heat we’ve been experiencing this summer,” said Anthea Gianniotes, the City of Delray Beach’s Development Services Director.

Walk through permits are in place to prioritize and expedite certain permit approvals and inspections. The City of Delray Beach also allows residents to apply for A/C permits 24-hours after their repairs are complete. The walk through permit application is the same process as standard permit applications, the only difference is a faster turnaround time. Using ePlans, the City’s digital plan review system, walk through permits can be found under “Express Permits” in the menu.

ePlans launched in November 2022, digitized the City’s plan review system, and now allows residents and contractors to submit all permit applications (except for demolition) online. Applicants can also check the status of their application, request inspections, pay, and download their permit without ever having to visit City Hall.
