Effective April 16, the City of Coral Gables will prohibit certain exterior construction on Saturdays in residential zones. The City is restricting the construction work hours to allow residents the peaceful enjoyment of their homes, especially on weekends. On Saturdays, construction work is only allowed between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., and no exterior construction will be allowed on any Saturday at any time in the city’s residential zone or within 100 feet of residential zones.
There are certain exemptions for Saturday construction work if the work is being performed by a property owner/resident under an owner-builder permit, if work is being performed by a property owner or resident that does not require a permit, and for power/pressure cleaning of sidewalks, driveways or roofs. All construction is also prohibited on Sundays and holidays. Special emergency requests to work outside the allowed hours can be made by visiting www.coralgables.com/workrequest.
