Building & Zoning


The Temple Terrace Building and Zoning Divisions consist of permitting, inspection services, zoning reviews, and contractor registrations for our community. Approvals for occupational and alcohol licenses and permits for special events also are handled by the department.


The City of Temple Terrace Building / Zoning Division is committed to promoting the health, safety, and welfare of the public through the application of building codes, fire protection regulations, and city ordinances  while providing high-quality, responsive, timely, and courteous service to our citizens and customers.


Our customers include the general public, contractors, architects, engineers, and developers. We are here to assist all those who live or work in our community by making the permitting and inspection process as simple and efficient as possible.

The Building Division has two main functions:
  • Regulation of building construction activities through permitting and inspection
  • Enforcement of the non-criminal aspects of city codes with regard to private and public property
