Emergency Preparedness

As we move into post-storm recovery efforts, please be aware that the City of New Port Richey is requesting your cooperation to assist us with expediting recovery of our community from the impacts of Hurricane Idalia. As you should be aware, properties in flood zones designated on our flood maps that were damaged by wind, water, fallen trees or other factors must be inspected before we can issue building permits for repair, reconstruction, or other improvements. 

The preliminary damage inspections are limited to evaluating the extent of damage to foundations, roofs, windows and doors, siding, installed appliances, electrical and plumbing, heating and air conditioning, and walls and floors. Inspections are required to assess the condition of the building and determine the work required to repair the building to its pre-damage condition. The period of inspections is limited to daylight hours only between 8:00 AM to 6:00PM. Once we have inspected your property and the results recorded in our database, we will send you a letter with the results and explain any requirements that may apply.


We greatly appreciate your willingness to allow our community inspectors to assess the condition of your property which will help you and the community move forward as quickly as possible with the permitting and repair of your building.


If you have any questions about this process or the inspectors, please contact us immediately by calling 727-853-1047.


Thank you for your cooperation and support to help our community to recover from Hurricane Idalia.
