​Sarasota County has been fortunate not to have suffered the devastation of a major disaster in recent history, but there have been some close calls.

There is no reason why a hurricane or other disaster could not directly hit Sarasota County. Even without a direct hit from a major hurricane, beach erosion, which will be exacerbated by sea level rise, is a major vulnerability for the county that threatens established neighborhoods and tourism.
For these reasons and others, on July 7, 2015, the County Commission approved the Post-Disaster Redevelopment Plan with adoption of Resolution No. 2015-118.  
As part of the Post-Disaster Redevelopment Plan, we created a checklist and flowchart designed to assist homeowners in the rebuilding process.
The checklist details the documents that property owners should have on hand pre-disaster that will aid them with redevelopment.
The flowchart details the associated permit review process.
These tools can help expedite the permitting process in post-disaster situations. Follow the link on the right.
