Attention Developers:

Volusia County  Development Engineering has implemented changes to the TIA Methodology submittal requirements. Below are the most notable changes you should be aware of when submitting applications. 

 A Preliminary Conceptual Plan Must be Submitted to Volusia County Development Engineering.

- A preliminary conceptual plan must now be coordinated prior to submitting the methodology. Also, the methodology needs to include and be based on the approved plan. If the project will need a county use permit, please coordinate conceptual plans with the county early in the process.

Developer Must Submit the TIA and TIA Methodology through the County Use Permit Application.

- A county use permit application is required to submit a project's use permit plans, as well as other materials including conceptual plans, methodologies, TIAs, responses to comments, and TIA required files. The project's same use permit will remain open until the project is approved.
