Pursuant to the charter, “no changes in the future land use map or the zoning districts within the boundaries of the town shall be considered for alteration” until such time as the town adopts its own Comprehensive Plan and Zoning Code. There is one exception for a parcel of land just under 100 acres located on Southern Boulevard (the 'Simon' property).

Building Division

The Palm Beach County Building Division has terminated an agreement with the Town of Loxahatchee Groves to process all Building Permits. The Building Division performed all related inspections associated with building permits. For building permit requests of single family homes and their accessory structures, the Building Division performed all general ULDC reviews. Building permit requests for multi-family or non-residential structures may have required prior approval by the Town or their designee for issues related to platting, right-of-way matters or ULDC requirements, prior to submittal for a permit request. Once necessary agency approvals were obtained, a building permit application was processed through the Building Division. For more information on the requirements for permit applications, please visit our web site at: http://www.pbcgov.com/pzb/Building. Go to the "Permit Center " link for information pertaining to permit types and most used forms. Once an application is made or the permit is issued, you may also track the progress of permit review and the results of inspections on active permits.
