1. Plumbing documents for any new building or addition which requires a plumbing system with more than 250 fixture units or which costs more than $125,000.
2. Fire sprinkler documents for any new building or addition which includes a fire sprinkler system which contains 50 or more sprinkler heads. Personnel as authorized by Chapter 633, Florida Statutes, may design a fire sprinkler system of 49 or fewer heads and may design the alteration of an existing fire sprinkler system if the alteration consists of the relocation, addition or deletion of not more than 49 heads, notwithstanding the size of the existing fire sprinkler system.
3. Heating, ventilation and air-conditioning documents for any new building or addition which requires more than a 15-ton-per-system capacity or which is designed to accommodate more than 100 persons or for which the system costs more than $125,000. This paragraph does not include any document for the replacement or repair of an existing system in which the work does not require altering a structural part of the building or for work on a residential one-family, two-family, three-family or four-family structure.
An air-conditioning system may be designed by an installing air-conditioning contractor certified under Chapter 489, Florida Statutes to serve any building or addition which is designed to accommodate 100 persons or fewer and requires an air-conditioning system with value of $125,000 or less; and when a 15-tonper- system or less is designed for a singular space of a building and each 15-ton system or less has an independent duct system. Systems not complying with the above require design documents that are to be sealed by an Engineer.
Example 1: When a space has two 10-ton systems with each having an independent duct system, the contractor may design these two systems since each system is less than 15 tons.
Example 2: Consider a small single-story office building, which consists of 6 individual offices where each office has a single three-ton package air conditioning heat pump. The six heat pumps are connected to a single water cooling tower. The cost of the entire heating, ventilation and air conditioning work is $47,000 and the office building accommodates fewer than 100 persons. Because the six mechanical units are connected to a common water tower this is considered to be an 18-ton system. It therefore could not be designed by a mechanical or air conditioning contractor.
Note: It was further clarified by the Commission that the limiting criteria of 100 persons and $125,000 apply to the building occupancy load and the cost of the total air-conditioning system of the building.
4. Any specialized mechanical, electrical, or plumbing document for any new building or addition which includes a medical gas, oxygen, steam, vacuum, toxic air filtration, clean agent fire extinguishing or fire detection and alarm system which costs more than $5,000.
5. Electrical documents. See Florida Statues 471.003(2) (h).
Note: Documents requiring an engineer seal by this part shall not be valid unless an Engineer who possesses a valid certificate of registration has signed, dated, and stamped such document as provided in s. 471.025, Florida Statutes.
6. All public swimming pools and public bathing places as defined by and regulated under Ch. 514, Florida Statues.
105.3.2 Time Limitation.
220.127.116.11 Every permit issued shall become null and avoid if work, as defined in Paragraph 18.104.22.168 authorized by such permit is not commenced within 180 days from the date the permit is issued or if the work authorized by such permit is suspended or abandoned for a period of 90 days after the time the work is commenced.
22.214.171.124 If the work covered by the permit has not commenced, or has been commenced and is been suspended or abandoned, the Building Official may for good cause, extend such permit for no more than two (2) periods of ninety (90) days, not to exceed 1 year, from the date of expiration of the initial permit, if an extension is requested.
126.96.36.199 If the work covered by the permit has commenced, is in progress, has not been completed and is being carried on progressively in a substantial manner in accordance with Paragraph
188.8.131.52 If work has commenced and the permit is revoked, becomes null and void or expires because of lack of progress or abandonment, a new permit covering the proposed construction shall be obtained before proceeding with the work.
184.108.40.206 If a new building permit is not obtained within 180 days from the date the initial permit became null and avoid, the Building Official is authorized to require that any work which has been commenced or completed be removed from the building site; or alternately, he or she may issue a new permit, on application, providing the work in place and the required work to complete the structure meets all applicable regulations in effect at the time the initial permit became null and void and any regulations which may have become effective between the date of expiration and the date of issuance of a new permit.
Exception: On written request from owner or the contractor, the Building Official may reinstate the permit one time. The job shall be completed under the jurisdiction of the code that the original permit was approved under. The reinstated permit shall be subject to the life safety requirements as determined by the Fire Code Official.
220.127.116.11.1 The Building Official shall provide written notification to both the permit holder and the property owner 30 days prior to the expiration date of the permit. The notice shall include the projected expiration date and the steps necessary to continue the permit in an active status. If the Building Official fails to provide written notification, and the permit expires, the permit holder may request a one-time 30-day extension of the permit so they have the opportunity to revalidate it.
18.104.22.168 Work shall be considered to have commenced and be in active progress when the permit has received an approved inspection within 90 days of being issued or if in the opinion of the Building Official, the permit has a full complement of workers and equipment is present at the site to diligently incorporate materials and equipment into the structure, weather permitting. This provision shall not be applicable in case of civil commotion or strike or when the building work is halted due directly to judicial injunction, order or similar process. The fact that the property or parties may be involved in litigation shall not be sufficient to constitute an exception to the time period set forth herein.
Exception: To the time period.

When a building reaches 40 years or older a notice will be sent informing the building owner to have a structural inspection performed by an architect or engineer and an electrical system inspection performed by a license electrical contractor. The report produced will identify any deficiencies, which will necessitate a repair permit. Once the report is reviewed and any repairs made, the building will be certified safe for continued occupancy for the next ten years.
The 40 year and older Building Safety Inspection Program was created in 2005 and has become effective throughout Broward County in January 2006. Modeled after Miami-Dade County’s program, which was established in the mid 1970s, Broward’s program calls for structural and electrical safety inspections for buildings 40 years old or older and every ten years thereafter. One and two family dwellings, U.S Government, State of Florida buildings, schools under the jurisdiction of the B.C. School Board, and buildings built on Indian Reservations are exempt from this program. Miami-Dade County’s effort exempts other buildings under 2,000 square feet while the Broward program excludes all buildings under 3,500 square feet. Both Counties have had instances of structural building failures. By having such a program in effect we are minimalizing the possibilities of future building failure and will be better prepared for hurricane winds.
Broward County 40 Years Building Safety Inspection Program Policy
You are required to furnish, or cause to be furnished, within ninety (90) days from the date of this Notice of Required Building Safety Inspection, the Broward County Board of Rules and Appeals Building Safety Inspection Certification Form to the Hallandale Beach Building Inspections Division, prepared by a Florida registered Professional Engineer or Architect registered in the State of Florida, certifying that each such building or structure is structurally and electrically safe, or has been made structurally and electrically safe for the specified use for continued occupancy, in conformity with the minimum inspection procedural guidelines as issued by the Board of Rules and Appeals.
Instructions are provided in the notification letters.
No. The entire 40-year report, finding, and corrective measures are all based on the integrity of the Architect’s report. Your architect or engineer should prepare a new 40-year Safety Inspection report to be submitted to the Building Department. It is the responsibility of the building owner to pay for and obtain the architect or engineer report.
No. It is important to note that not only do condominiums and apartments are required to have their 40 or 50-year recertifications. All residential properties larger than a duplex, and at least 3,500SF in size need to be recertified.
The purpose of the inspection is to address structural and electrical life, health, and safety issues; not aesthetic changes.
View our list of properties that have had inspections and whether or not the property passed by visiting our webpage at www.CoHB.org/SafetyInspection
Yes, the building owner is responsible to pay and obtain the engineer report and pay the established fees from our building department.
If you are aware that a building, 40 years or older has not been certified, is not listed, or shows signs of severe damage, please notify us on MyHB App or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The licensed professional engineer or registered architect will use their discretion to determine how many units will be inspected.
If a property did not meet the 180-day deadline, an extension must be requested. Extensions are granted by the Building Official depending on the situation and complexity of the required work.
If the report finds critical safety concerns, or if the property is non-compliant (no efforts to apply for permits), the Building Official can recommend the structure be deemed unsafe to the Unsafe Structures Board. The City will be arranging for a meeting of the Unsafe Structures Board in the near future.
No. The City’s review is based totally on the engineer’s report. Their seal certifies the integrity of the report. Repairs will be required as stated by the architect/engineer.
No. An inspection is needed to ensure the electrical and structural exterior of the entire building is in compliance with the 40 Year Building Safety Program. If the work was recently completed, the architect should be able to recertify the building on the required forms. The inspection will not be waived unless the ENTIRE building was demolished.

As the City of Hallandale Beach charts course for a financially responsible future, it must explore options to find new revenue to pay for the increasing cost of public services.
For years, Hallandale Beach has been missing out on significant revenues by not charging fair market rate for in-demand parking spaces. Based on conservative estimates, the expansion of the City of Hallandale Beach’s parking program would result in approximately $1.4 million dollars in new revenue. This revenue can be used to replace our aging fleet of police vehicles, allow the City to keep parks open longer, expedite permitting processes, and increase code compliance efforts. Further, parking enforcement has a public safety component as it provides an authoritative presence, a marked vehicle with lights and uniformed parking specialist, discouraging criminal activity, and removes dumped and illegally parked vehicles from our neighborhoods.
Parking takes up some of the most valuable land in the City of Hallandale Beach, and is the single biggest land use in our City.
Free parking in the City has only been free to the person parking in the space, not to the City That free space you are used to using costs money. Parking Industry Experts rely on the International Parking Institute for research and that research indicates each space costs at least $400 annually to maintain. The cost of one person’s free parking, which includes the cost of the land, pavement, street cleaning, and other related services, is actually subsidized by the rest of the City taxpayers.
Starting August 4th, the City Commission will consider whether to instruct the City Administration to move forward with this planned ordinance change.
Prior to the item being heard before the Commission, a Virtual Town Hall Meeting was held on the proposed parking ordinance change on Monday, July 19, 2021.
Residents wishing to provide feedback on the proposed ordinance change are encouraged to e-mail your commissioners directly, or the City Administration.
Upon approval of the ordinance changes by the City of Hallandale Beach Commission, the City would begin a public education campaign to inform residents and visitors of the new rates and zones. Meters and the Pay-by-Phone app would be updated to reflect the new rates and information.
As the City adjusts to this new parking policy and fees, there is expected to be a grace period where warnings will be issued instead of violations.
When the grace period expires, the City’s parking enforcement team will implement full enforcement of the city’s updated parking plan as approved by the City Commission.
Yes, the monthly pass covers parking within the designated zone 24 hours a day/ 7 days a week.
Under the new Parking Program, due to low usage and limited parking, the beach parking pass program will be eliminated. The current beach parking passes will be honored until they expire.
Registered residents will enjoy the discounted premium parking resident rate at the beach ($2.50 an hour), and non-residents will pay the premium rate ($4 an hour).
Currently, overnight parking at the beach is not part of the proposed parking program.
The proposed parking program recommends registered residents receive a discounted resident rate on parking fees on the Pay-By-Phone app.
Non-residents will pay the regular, non-discounted rate. Below are the rates:
Standard parking rate for residents remains at $1.00 per hour.
Standard parking rate for non-residents & visitors increases to $2.00 per hour.
Premium parking rate for residents remains at $2.50 per hour.
Premium parking rate for non-residents & visitors increases to $4.00 per hour.
No, the proposed parking program does not include physical parking meters. Metered parking refers to paid parking which will be conducted on the PayByPhone system. Currently, the parking lots at North City Beach and South City Beach Parks and the on street parking at Joseph Scavo Park utilize the PaybyPhone app and have physical meters that will continue to operate under the proposed parking program.
All disputes are processed through the Broward County Clerk of the Courts. Parking citations outline the instructions for contesting parking citations.
Upon approval of the ordinance changes by the City of Hallandale Beach Commission, the City will begin a public education campaign to inform residents and visitors of the new rates and zones. Meters and the Pay-by-Phone app will be updated to reflect the new rates and information.
As the City adjusts to this new parking policy and fees, there is expected to be a grace period where warnings will be issued instead of violations.
When the grace period expires, the City's parking enforcement team will implement full enforcement of the City's updated parking plan as approved by the City Commission.
This revenue will be placed into the general fund, which can be used to replace our aging fleet of police vehicles, allow the City to keep parks open longer, expedite permitting processes, and increase code compliance efforts. The City Commission will ultimately decide how the funds are allocated.
Per Florida law 316.1964, drivers of vehicles displaying a disabled parking permit or license plate are allowed to park for free up to four (4) hours in any on-street parking space, unless signage posted restricts the time to park. For example, if the signage establishes a three-hour time limit, then the driver is allowed to park for a maximum of three hours. After the time limit expires, the driver must pay the established parking rate or move the vehicle from the parking space.
Drivers with Veteran or Disabled Persons tags will also receive a discount on the Monthly Parking Pass.
The resident parking pass is only for vehicles parking in designated parking spaces in the public right of way. Residents with adequate on-site parking are not required to purchase a parking pass.
Based on conservative estimates, the expansion of the City of Hallandale Beach's parking program would result in approximately $1.4 million in new revenue. The annual cost for parking specialist salaries, the cost for maintaining parking vehicles, equipment, etc., is anticipated to be $320,000 annually.
The parking program anticipates more available parking spaces, not the creation of new spaces. By charging for parking, parking spaces are anticipated to have higher turnover resulting in more availability.
The resident parking pass program will allow residents to purchase a monthly resident zone pass for thirty ($30) dollars. The passes will be restricted to within the designated zone where the resident can prove residency. The passes will eliminate the need to pay the parking fee hourly in that zone and allow residents to receive the resident discounted hourly rate throughout the City. Acquisition of the residential pass does not guarantee or reserve a space.
Metered Parking is not required to enforce abandoned vehicles.
Metered parking is being implemented to collect revenues to pay for public services attributed to the public right of way as well as address the availability of parking by increasing turnover and addressing abandoned vehicles.
Free on-street parking in the City has only been free to the person parking in the space, not to the City. That free space costs money. Parking Industry Experts rely on the International Parking Institute for research, and that research indicates each space costs at least $400 annually to maintain. The cost of one person's free parking, including the cost of the land, pavement, street cleaning, and other related services, is subsidized by the rest of the City’s taxpayers.
Yes, the City has hired four (4) parking enforcement specialists assigned to the Police Department.
Yes, the residents will be able to purchase the residential pass on the PayByPhone App. Residents without a smart phone can purchase the monthly pass over the phone.
The residential parking program will allow residents to purchase a monthly resident zone pass for thirty ($30) dollars. The passes will be restricted to within the designated zone where the resident can prove residency. The passes will eliminate the need to pay the parking fee hourly in that zone and allow residents to receive the resident discounted hourly rate throughout the City. Acquisition of the residential pass does not guarantee or reserve a space.
The parking program will generate a higher turnover of parking spaces. This will increase the availability of parking spaces for residents more than what is currently available today.
Residents will be able to purchase a maximum of three (3) parking passes per residence.
The increase in turnover will be realized from the constant movement of dumped, abandoned, or visiting vehicles which often occupy the right of way for extended periods of time. The City may choose to modify the parking program in future phases to meet the needs of residential parking zones.
Parking can only be paid through our PaybyPhone service. Residents can pay via the PaybyPhone app or by phone.
Current City Code prohibits the parking of commercial vehicles on the street in residential areas.
The proposed parking program included the addition of four parking enforcement specialists who will enforce all ordinance and statutory violations related to parking. Commercial vehicles are prohibited from purchasing a monthly parking pass.
The current PaybyPhone transaction fee is $.27 per month. The total cost is anticipated to be $30.27 per month.
Diana Drive is designated a premium parking area due to the abundance of hotel patrons utilizing the on-street parking to avoid paying for parking at the Beachwalk hotel.
The premium rate to park overnight was required to disincentive the Hotel patrons from using the on-street parking. The increased rate will provide residents more available on-street parking as hotel patrons will more likely park in the hotel parking lot.
The resident parking pass fee remains $30 per month for residents living in the Diana Drive zone.
There is no evidence of shopper or transient parking on Golden Isles Drive. The quote was referring to commercial areas in the City.
The parking space requirements have varied over the years. Currently, parking requirements for new construction necessitate more parking spaces.
Parking around the perimeter of Bluesten Park will be enforced at the standard rate or through the residential parking pass. Parking in the Peter Bluesten Parking lot for park and YMCA users will continue to be free when the park is open. By current ordinance, parking in the park's parking lots is limited to park/ YMCA users.
Only residents that reside in the residential parking zones can purchase a parking pass for their registered vehicles. Any other vehicles must pay the hourly rate. There is no free/ temporary guest parking available through this program.
Residents in a parking zone could purchase a monthly zone pass for their vehicle and allow their guest to use their onsite parking spot (please confirm with your specific condominium rules) and the owner could park on the street to save on the guest paying the hourly overnight rate.
There is a resident parking discount for all registered residents as well as a monthly resident parking pass available to qualified residents. Seniors (65+) will receive a discount on the monthly resident parking pass.
The monthly resident pass will allow the resident to park in the designated residential zone without paying the hourly rate.
The resident pass also registers the vehicle for the resident discount, which will be available Citywide. Residents do not need to purchase a resident pass to obtain the resident discount on hourly parking. All residents are encouraged to register free of charge to obtain the resident discount.
The City may choose to expand the parking program and add zones in future phases of the parking program.
Acquisition of the residential pass does not guarantee or reserve a space.
- The investment becomes part of the property.
- It is intended to be a permanent installation.
