Certifications & Forms

A Flood Plain Permit shall be obtained before construction or development begins on property within any of the special flood hazard areas.

Elevation Certificate

The Elevation Certificate is an important administrative tool of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). It is to be used to provide elevation information necessary to ensure compliance with community floodplain management ordinances, to determine the proper insurance premium rate, and to support a request for a Letter of Map Amendment or Revision (LOMA or LOMR-F)


Certification of the elevation of the lowest floor, floodproofed elevation or elevation of the structure's lowest horizontal member is required at that point where the footings are set and slab poured. Failure to submit the elevation certification shall be cause to issue a stop work order for the project. As-built plans certifying the elevation of the lowest adjacent grade are also required

If fill is used to elevate a structure above the base flood elevation, the permit holder may wish to apply for a letter of map amendment or Revision (LOMA or LOMR).
