Get a Permit Before Rebuilding,
before making major repairs, new construction or demolishing. Check with our building official and floodplain administrator for permitting requirements. Permits protect owners, residents, communities and their buildings by making sure construction meets current building codes, standards, flood ordinances and construction techniques. Permits also provide a permanent record of compliance with elevation, which is useful information when selling a home and getting a quote for flood insurance.
Are you in zone AE? Not sure? Call us and we will look you up. For those properties in zone AE, a floodplain permit is REQUIRED for ALL work being done on the property. Contact us today for more information.
ORDINANCE #207 PROVIDES FOR A 2 FT FREE-BOARD FOR ALL PROPERTIES IN THE SPECIAL FLOOD HAZARD AREA. WHICH MEANS THAT ANY NEW CONSTRUCTION OR SUBSTANTIAL IMPROVEMENTS ON PROPERTIES WHOSE ELEVATION IS LESS THAN 2 FT ABOVE BASE FLOOD ELEVATION MUST BE ELEVATED TO 2 FT OR ABOVE IN ORDER TO OBTAIN A PERMIT.
Yep, there is likely a permit required. Electrical, plumbing, HVAC, gas... it is better to call first and find out you don't need it, than our code enforcement officer to see you doing it. Then the fees double. We are currently using the 2012 International Building & Residential Codes.
If you have questions about permits, or any of the forms please contact Ali at City Hall.
