Floodplain Development Permit Requirements
All buildings under construction require permits. These permits must be obtained prior to commencement of construction activities. Contact the Building and Zoning Departments before you build, alter, regrade or fill your property. If you see any building or filling without a permit posted, please call our Code Compliance Department at 305.593.6680.
Drainage System Maintenance
Proper drainage helps reduce the risk of flooding. It is illegal for the direct or indirect entry of any solid, liquid or gaseous matter into the drainage system other than rainwater run off. The City periodically inspects the drainage system and regularly schedules debris removal operations in order to keep the drainage system at peak performance. You can help in this process by keeping the streets clear of materials and debris that could potentially affect the drainage system. Please report any illegal dumping activities that may affect drainage and/or contaminate the ground water to the Public Works Department at 305.593.6740.
Whether you are celebrating a grand opening, an art show, a tournament or a national holiday, outdoor events are a great way for individuals to come together. But, did you know that outdoor events require the approval of the City and, even more, they often require building permits?
An outdoor event is considered as a temporary use of public or private property for the purpose of hosting concerts, festivals, carnivals, races, triathlons, walks, shows, exhibitions, and the like. To ensure the safety of our residents and to maintain the quality of life of our community, the City of Doral must approve all outdoor events prior to any event taking place.
