Floodplain Development Requirements

Any development activity within the floodplain requires approval of a flood development permit issued by the City’s Engineering Department. This requirement is meant to protect your property and that of others by controlling alteration and development in flood prone areas. A floodplain development permit will be required for activities such as building or enlarging a structure, placing a manufactured home, mining, dredging, filling, grading, drilling, excavating, landscaping, installing a fence, storing supplies and/or equipment, repairing roads or bridges, placing a fuel storage tank and placing a recreational vehicle. In addition to the City’s flood development permit, any proposed work involving a structure must also have an elevation certificate submitted with the floodplain development permit.
