Building

General:

Construction within the Town may involve several different areas of regulation, depending on the nature and scope of construction. In addition to the International Residential Building, Plumbing, Electrical, Mechanical, Fire codes and 2015 International Swimming Pool and Spa Code, the Town enforces a Zoning, subdivision, and a Code of General Ordinances. Before commencing any construction or remodeling, a Building Permit must be obtained from the Town. A Zoning certificate may also be required for any change in use, even if no Building Permit is required.

Modification  or Repair of Flood Prone Property:

If your home or business sustained damage, or if you are making improvements to the structure's exterior and/or interior, your community has Flood Damage Prevention Regulations that many affect how you rebuild or make improvements. These laws are required by the National Flood Insurance Program flood insurance to be made available to community residents and property owners.

FEMA Technical Bulletins for Building in a Flood Hazard Area

FEMA Technical Bulletins provide guidance concerning the building performance standards of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), which are contained in Title 44 of the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations at Section 60.3. The bulletins are intended for use primarily by state and local officials responsible for in­terpreting and enforcing NFIP regulations and by members of the development community, such as design professionals and builders. The bulletins do not create regulations, rather they provide specific guidance for complying with the minimum requirements of existing NFIP regulations.
