Administrative Waiver

The Administrative Waiver Ordinance adopted by the City of North Miami Beach on November 19, 2019 was created to provide a procedure for property owners and businesses of existing developments to obtain relief from the City’s zoning code regulations for development standards pertaining to site development.

The Community Development Director is authorized to grant or deny any minor administrative waiver for existing development. Projects that require minor relief from the City’s code pertaining to modification of plans, site arrangements, setback lines, frontage requirements, height limitations, lot size restrictions may apply for an administrative waiver. Eligible projects may include landscaping materials, walls, fences, carports, driveways, pools, storage sheds, docks, gazebos, pergolas, and others. Waivers cannot exceed a decrease or increase of any numerical code requirement by more than 25 percent. New development subject to site plan approval, signage, and floodplain regulations will not be eligible. Waivers can be approved if you submit a complete application, follow the waiver review and notification process, and meet the minimum criteria for granting an administrative waiver.
