Punta Gorda Building Department Updates:

  • 11.4.2020: Email sent to contractors:
      • From Chief Building Official Randall L. Cole:
        • Given the possibility of a storm affecting our area early next week, the City of Punta Gorda Building Division is requesting the following to be addressed on all jobsites:
  •  If dumpsters are ½ full or more, make arrangements to have them emptied prior to the Friday the 6th. If this is not possible, please ensure that they are tarped by Friday evening.
  • Ensure that all silt screens are securely in place.
  • Keep all swales clear.
  • If roofing tiles or shingles are being or have been delivered, but not yet installed, be prepared to bundle them if conditions warrant this week.
  • Please remove any loose items from the jobsite or secure them inside of the structure.

Building inspectors will be out through Friday to ensure jobsites are secure.


Whether we are impacted or not by adverse weather, the residents around these sites will be concerned and we should have the sites secured for the weekend.

Thank you.
