Questions Concerning Your New Development?

The City of Pinellas Park Community Development Department, in concert with multiple City Departments and Divisions, will hold virtual Pre-Development meetings for design professionals who wish to discuss a proposed upcoming development. The goal of this meeting is to discuss the proposed project and give an opportunity for multiple divisions to note common requirements and address any concerns that may arise as we review the proposed project preliminary site plan. There is opportunity for all parties to ask questions prior to final design so that the permitting process will proceed more smoothly.

If you are interested in a Pre-Development meeting, please contact Joel Graves, Building Development Services Supervisor @ (727) 369-5633 or

Starting March 1st our permit fee structure is increasing. See those changes here
