Department of Development Services
City of Cocoa Beach, Florida

Interim Policies to Minimize the Risk of Exposure and Slow the Spread of COVID-19
In an abundance of caution-and due to Brevard County issuing a local state of emergency, said state of emergency having been adopted by the City of Cocoa Beach on March 17, 2020, the City continues to take immediate and, hopefully, temporary measures in response to the outbreak of COVID-19. The following actions and/or policy changes are currently in effect within the Development Services Department.

Building Permits:

In an effort to limit face to face contact, discussions and permit information can be obtained by calling (321) 868-3217 or (321) 868-3298. Faxed information can be sent to (321)-868-3212.

Effective Monday, March 23, 2020, City Hall will begin to limit face to face contact with the general public. Doors will be locked; however, you may reach the department at the numbers listed above to discuss your individual issue and to determine whether a meeting is warranted. We are asking that those who wish to submit permits at City Hall adhere to the social distancing norms and to the Department’s designated distance from the front counter.

Building Inspections:

All inspection requests must still be scheduled. The number for scheduling inspections is (321) 868-3217.

The need for face to face meetings will be evaluated by the planning staff and the Director of Development Services during the time of these interim policies.

UPDATES ON OUR POLICE SERVICES

CBPD continues to take precautionary measures, both internally and externally, in an effort to keep you and our personnel healthy and safe. It’s critical that everyone FOLLOWS CDC GUIDELINES! Cops don’t work from home! Stay informed with factual information from trusted sources such as Florida Department of Health and Brevard County Emergency Management. City Hall has been continually pushing out info as well.

Remember to lock your vehicles, close garages, and secure your personal property, as you should be doing regardless of a crisis. We’ve noticed an increasing trend in property crime. Help us mitigate crime by doing your part.

Below are some updates as of Thu, March 19:

  • PD lobby is closed. For an emergency, dial 9-1-1. For a non-emergency, call 321-868-3251.

  • Increased beach patrol to monitor compliance to CDC guidelines and provide more presence. RIP CURRENTS ARE STRONG.
