Effective Aug. 15, 2022, Gov. Roy Cooper ended the two-year state of emergency associated with COVID-19. The termination of this state of emergency ended many COVID-specific provisions, including the freeze on expiring building and trade permits in North Carolina.
In accordance with this change, Mecklenburg County Code Enforcement has released the notification below to customers that certain permits will soon expire when the County’s system is updated on Sept. 28th. These soon to expire permits include:
- Permits that were scheduled to expire before March 10, 2020 (prior to the declaration of the state of emergency), will expire on their original expiration date. This may mean that some permits that are still active will immediately expire once Code Enforcement’s system is updated.
- Per state guidance, permits originally scheduled to expire between March 10, 2020, and April 1, 2020, will expire five months after the original expiration date. This may mean that some permits that are still active will immediately expire once Code Enforcement’s system is updated.
- Permits originally scheduled to expire after April 1, 2020, will begin to expire in January 2023.
