Using the newly acquired topography and detailed survey information of the Pack Creek floodplain area, the proposed revision to update the FEMA Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) information has been submitted to FEMA and the Letter of Map Revision (LOMR) has been granted to Grand County. We are using this information as best information available.

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.
