Build Responsibly

Make informed choices when you renovate or build a new home.

Flooding and construction

Living in a floodplain carries with it risk that we can, to some extent, prepare for. If you’re rebuilding, repairing, constructing an addition, or building a new structure, consider your property’s flood risk as part of the construction process. Utilizing resilient construction techniques will save you money in the long run and help to keep your household safe.

Applicable ordinances

We have several regulations and processes in place to reduce flood risk for present and future construction projects. Review them carefully before beginning a project. By following our permitting process and abiding by our codes, you’re developing responsibly and contributing to the safety of our community. We’re always here to help if you run into questions or have concerns!
