If you are searching for a copy of previously completed elevation certificate please take some time to review the Planning Actions (509-PA-0####) for the property in question (LMD Pro). In addition, as the records are often attached with structure(s) on the property, you may need to also review Building Permits (509-BP-0####).” If you don’t have an elevation certificate, your first step will be to evaluate the property for floodplain using our Floodplain Website, depending on the presence and type of flood hazard area, you may consult with our Planner On Duty about next steps for your inquires.
