Residents of Forest Acres are reminded to obtain permits for repairs to damaged structures within the floodplain. Due to the recent flooding event, many structures may have experienced structural damage. Repairs and /or reconstruction activities to damaged structures in the floodplain will require a floodplain development permit from the City of Forest Acres Building Department as required by Forest Acres’ Flood Damage Prevention Ordinance. Failure to obtain the necessary permits can result in violations and lost time for recovery. For more information on the permitting process, contact the Forest Acres Building Department at 782-9475.
This inspection is a requirement of the National Flood Insurance Program, however, you may encounter other inspection teams gathering different information for various programs. (Individual Assistance, Public Assistance, etc.)
