Section 3 - Application For Permit
The application for a Flood Hazard Development Permit shall be submitted to the Code
Enforcement Officer and shall include:
A. The name, address and phone number of the applicant, owner and contractor;
B. An address and a map indicating the location of the construction site;
C. A site plan showing location of existing and/or proposed development, including but not
limited to structures, sewage disposal facilities, water supply facilities, areas to be cut and
filled, and lot dimensions;
D. A statement of the intended use of the structure and/or development;
E. A statement as to the type of sewage system proposed;
F. Specifications of dimensions of the proposed structure and/or development;
[Items G-J.2. apply only to new construction and substantial improvements.]
G. The elevation in relation to the National Geodetic Vertical Datum (NGVD), or to a locally
established datum, of the:
1. base flood at the proposed site of all new or substantially improved structures, which in
Zone A is determined:
(a) from any base flood elevation data from federal, state, or other technical sources
(such as FEMA’s Quick-2 model, FEMA 265/July 1995), including information
obtained pursuant to Section 6.J. and 9.D.;
(b) from the contour elevation extrapolated from a best fit analysis of the floodplain
boundary when overlaid onto a USGS Quadrangle Map or other topographical
map prepared by a Professional Land Surveyor or registered professional
engineer, if the floodplain boundary has a significant correlation to the elevation
contour line(s); or, in the absence of all other data,
(c.) to be the elevation of the ground at the intersection of the floodplain boundary
and a line perpendicular to the shoreline which passes along the ground through
the site of the proposed building.
2. highest and lowest grades at the site adjacent to the walls of the proposed building;
3. lowest floor, including basement; and whether or not such structures contain a basement;
and,
4. level, in the case of non-residential structures only, to which the structure will be
floodproofed;
H. A description of an elevation reference point established on the site of all developments for
which elevation standards apply as required in Section 6;
I. A written certification by a Professional Land Surveyor, registered professional engineer or
architect, that the base flood elevation and grade elevations shown on the application are
accurate;
J. The following certifications as required in Section 6 by a registered professional engineer or
architect:
1. a Floodproofing Certificate (FEMA Form 81-65, 08/99, as amended), to verify that the
floodproofing methods for any non-residential structures will meet the floodproofing
criteria of Section 3.G.4.; Section 6.G.; and other applicable standards in Section 6;
2. a Hydraulic Openings Certificate to verify that engineered hydraulic openings in
foundation walls will meet the standards of Article 6.K.2.a.;
3. a certified statement that bridges will meet the standards of Section 6.L.;
4. a certified statement that containment walls will meet the standards of Section 6.M.;
K. A description of the extent to which any water course will be altered or relocated as a result of
the proposed development; and,
L. A statement of construction plans describing in detail how each applicable development
standard in Section 6 will be met.
