The Planning & Zoning Division is responsible for reviewing all proposed development within the City of Dania Beach for compliance with the City's Land Development Code and Comprehensive Plan.
The Planning & Zoning Division provides recommendations to the Planning & Zoning Board and City Commission regarding rezoning requests, land use plan amendments, site plans, plats, variance and special exception requests, and design variations, waivers, vacations and delegations requests. It also periodically updates code and comprehensive plan pursuant to State Law and as directed by the City Commission.
If I have questions regarding zoning regulations applicable to existing commercial, industrial or warehouse buildings, or would like to know if your business is permitted in the city, or regarding zoning regulations concerning single family homes (including sheds, additions, fences, swimming pools, patios, etc) please contact Planning and Zoning at 954-924-6800 x3793
For questions regarding all other development (apartments, commercial, industrial, and vacant land) please contact the Planning & Zoning Manager at 954-924-6800 x3640.
Please be aware that the City of Dania Beach’s DRC process requires a hard copy of the application and application fee payment to be submitted to City Planning staff BEFORE electronic submittal will be accepted for processing. Applications will only be accepted on the submittal date identified on the annual DRC Meeting Deadline schedule (see schedule below). The application must identify the number of proposed residential dwelling units and/or the square footage of commercial/industrial use, as applicable. Once the application and fee are received a file number will be issued which must be used to identify the project when submitting electronically. Once the file number is issued, the applicant has 24 hours to load the plans electronically. Failure to submit within 24 hours will require the application to begin again the
following month. Please review the Dania Beach DRC Electronic Submittal information which is available below.
Please contact the Planning & Zoning Manager before submitting any Standard Development applications for DRC review. Please note that Development review applications are not considered submitted until approved for acceptance by the Community Development Director and routed for review to DRC members.
