You can apply for a demo permit through the town from the demolition contractor. The demo permit application is located on the town’s website here.

After you get a demo permit, the contractor must request and pass inspections from the Lee County Utilities Department, the Town of Fort Myers Beach Utilities Department, and the Fort Myers Beach Building Services Division.

The following steps must also be completed by the demolition contractor:

1) A copy of the permit inspection board and all approved permitting documents must remain posted in a weather-protected condition at the job site, visible from the street.
