How do I build within or adjacent to a floodplain?

Developing on a parcel with floodplain will require a development permit to go alongside the zoning permit. Staff will need a site plan with the proposed location of the new building(s). Some sites may require a surveyor to mark the proposed location(s) on the site plan. Once the footers of the new building(s) have been laid, staff will need to verify that the structure(s) are located outside of the floodplain. This is done with an as built survey, but in some circumstances may be done with a site visit by Planning staff. If Planning staff provides a site visit a $50 fee will be charged with the issuing of the development permit.
