County’s Building Division to open satellite office for residential permit requests

Bartow, Fla. (April 11, 2019) — The Polk County Building Division is pleased to announce the opening of a second permitting office for customers’ convenience on Monday, April 15, 2019. The new office is located at 28039 US 27 in the Dundee Plaza. Staff at this office will assist customers with same day residential permitting requests. There will be no commercial permit issuance or review at this office. 

The office hours will mirror those at the main office: Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and 10 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month. Customers must be in the queue with a permit application number by 12:00 p.m. for applications that involve plan review and mobile home set-ups and 1:30 p.m. for all other residential permit requests. Please visit the county’s website at for more information about office hours and permit requirements.

To apply for a residential same-day permit, customers can start an application online from the webpage by selecting the online permitting icon or they can use the kiosks located in the office. Once the application has been initiated and a permit number has been assigned, customers will bring the permit number confirmation sheet, along with any required supplemental documents, e.g., engineered plans, NOCs, site plans, etc., to the office to continue the permitting process. 

We look forward to serving you at the County Administration Building (330 W. Church Street, Bartow) or the Dundee Satellite Office (28039 US 27, Dundee).
