WHAT TYPE OF REPAIR WORK REQUIRES A FLOODPLAIN USE PERMIT?
Flood damage repairs and other improvements are considered development regulated by the Floodplain Regulations for Maricopa County. Development includes any changes or repairs to your home or a structure if it is located within the floodplain. This permit is required even if the repairs or development are within the original structure’s footprint.
If the damages to a structure in the floodplain amount to equals or exceeds 50% of the pre-damaged market value of the structure, you will be required to bring the entire structure into compliance with the Regulations. If the damages to a structure are less than 50% of the pre-damaged market value of the home the work can likely be permitted.
The floodplain use permit fees will be waived until August of 2022.
