The beach is a public area that is open and accessible to all persons. Tybee’s beaches are city maintained and subjected to reasonable regulation in order to promote the health, safety, welfare and morals of all persons as well as provide a unique area for all persons to pursue peaceful relaxation and quiet enjoyment in a reasonable manner. The City recognizes that it is desirable and necessary to preserve the unique nature of the beach areas, and to protect all persons who utilize those areas, the issuance of a temporary beach and/or special events permit may be required for activity beyond that of usual beachgoers. Please be aware that the primary purpose of the beach is for public use, and a permit for your event may not be possible. For further permit information please see the Special Events Planning page.
Building inspections are handled through the Planning and Zoning Department. Some inspections are handled by Chatham County staff under contract with the City of Tybee Island. Two very good reasons for building inspections are:
- To insure compliance with the minimum building standards
- To protect the health safety and welfare of owners and occupants by insuring the structure will withstand loads and wind forces
