    A permit is the document that issues consent to move forward on a building project. Qualified professionals have examined the impact a project is likely to have on available resources and infrastructure. Roads, bridges, water, sewer and fire services are examples of the services a project may impact. The permitting process begins with the review of plans and ends with a Certificate of Occupancy or Certificate of Completion. The City of Miami Beach Building Department administers most of the processes for projects occurring within the City of Miami Beach.
