Zoning Plans Review

The Zoning Plans Processing Section works closely with the Public Works and Waste Management Department to determine if road right-of-way dedications have been completed and whether the site complies with platting requirements. This section also reviews zoning hearing and administrative variance files, administrative site plans, as well as restrictive covenants that pertain to the site to determine compliance with plans submitted for permitting.

Building permit construction plans are reviewed for compliance with Chapter 33 the Zoning Code of Miami-Dade County, Florida by the Zoning Plans Processing section.

Of major concern are setbacks to property lines, lot coverage, floor area ratio, number of stories, height of buildings, parking spaces, permitted uses in each zoning classification and compliance with Chapter 18A, Landscaping Code.

The Zoning Plans Processing Section makes use of numerous forms that may be required as part of the plan review and approval process. Copies of these forms are available below in Adobe Acrobat format to download and/or print. 

Once a plan is reviewed, it is either approved or rejected.


Some of the most frequently used forms and procedural information are available here in Adobe Acrobat format:

Other forms may be obtained by contacting the Zoning Plans Processing Section at 786-315-2650.
