Via Pinellas County

Residents of unincorporated Pinellas County whose home was damaged and made uninhabitable because of Hurricane Idalia may apply to place a temporary shelter on their property until their primary home can be repaired or replaced. A temporary shelter may be a recreational vehicle, trailer, or similar structure. It must be connected to utilities and be fully located on the resident’s property outside of any easements.   

To place a temporary shelter on your property, you’ll need to apply for zoning clearance and for the appropriate utility permits. You will also need to obtain repair permits for work being done on your primary residence. For properties within unincorporated Pinellas County, there are both online and in-person options to apply. Permitting for temporary shelter will be expedited.  

To start the process, please contact the Building and Development Review Services project management representative at 727-464-4013 or email If you are not located within unincorporated Pinellas County, please check with your local municipality for guidance. 

Updates on all Hurricane Idalia recovery efforts in Pinellas will be posted at, Facebook @PinellasGov and Twitter @PinellasGov, search hashtag #PinellasIdalia.
