Grand County Floodplain Permit Process
If your property touches the Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA), you will need a copy of your plat with the flood plain layer showing where construction will take place. If your construction project is in or touches the SFHA, a Floodplain Development Permit Application and a Preconstruction Elevation Certificate (completed by a Utah-licensed surveyor), is required. A Postconstruction Elevation Certificate is required prior to issuing the Certificate of Occupancy.
