Floodplain Development Permits are required for all development within the Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) per Article XXVII of the Zoning Regulations. Obtain a Floodplain Development Permit before you build a new structure, renovate an existing structure, or grade a property in the SFHA. Floodplain Development Permit applications are available online. If you have questions regarding Floodplain Development Permits, please contact the Planning Department at (402) 597-2077. If you suspect that the floodplain is being modified without a permit, please fill out the Mayor's Hotline Suspicious Floodplain Activity form or contact the planning Department at (402) 597-2077.
