Key West Building Permit Allocation System (BPAS)

The BPAS is the City’s primary tool to regulate new residential development growth. The BPAS establishes minimum baseline standards for all new residential dwelling units and assures sustainability, environmental responsibility, human health and safety. The BPAS also helps ensure the City’s infrastructure can accommodate the new residential growth while maintaining or improving the 24-hour hurricane evacuation time for permanent residents.

To schedule a pre-application meeting or an appointment to submit your application, please call 305-809-3720.
