Floodplain Development Permit

A floodplain development permit is required for any new construction, remodel or major repairs to property located within the floodplain.  Floodplain permits help to reduce the hazards of flooding to people and property located within a floodplain.  In addition to the floodplain development permit, additional building permits are required in the specific trade areas where work is to be performed. The NFIP 50% Rule for Substantial Damage/Improvements applies.  Please consult our Rebuilding after a Flood Brochure for additional details.

If you have questions about floodplain development regulations, call 563.326.7765. For questions about other building codes and regulations, call 563.326.7745.
