PLEASE READ BELOW
If your structure meets any of the following criteria, your structure will be subject to compliance requirements
for demolition or elevating your structure.
Nonconforming use. A structure, or the use of a structure or premises that was lawful before the passage of
the city’s floodplain ordinance, but which is not in conformity with the provisions of Chapter 38, may be
continued subject to the following conditions:
If such structure, use, or utility service is discontinued for twelve (12) consecutive months, any future
use of the building shall conform to Chapter 38 of the City of Branson Municipal Code.
If any nonconforming use or structure is destroyed by any means, including flood, it shall not be
reconstructed if the cost is more than 50 percent of the pre-damaged market value of the structure.
Cumulative improvement. A use or structure may be improved (remodeled or enlarged) without conforming
to current requirements for elevation so long as the cumulative value of all work done within the last five
calendar years does not exceed 50 percent of the structure’s current market value. If the cumulative value of
the improvement exceeds 50 percent of the structure’s current market value, the structure must be brought
into compliance which requires elevation of residential structure to or above the base flood elevation or the
elevation/flood proofing of non-residential structures to or above the base flood elevation.
Substantial damage. Damage of any origin sustained by a structure whereby the cost of restoring the
structure to its before-damaged condition would equal or exceed 50 percent of the market value of the
structure before the damage occurred. The term "substantial damage" includes repetitive loss. Repetitive loss
means flood-related damages sustained by a structure on two separate occasions during a ten-year period for
which the cost of repairs at the time of each such flood event, equals or exceeds 25 percent of the market
value of the structure before the damage occurred.
