Chapter 50 (Floods) Variance
So that we may efficiently review your variance request in a timely manner, it is important that all required documents listed on the
“Submittal Checklist” below are submitted with your application. Feasibility reviews with our Development Review Committee (DRC) are
available to help answer these questions prior to the formal submittal of application(s). (Please call the number above to schedule an
appointment.) Submit applications and accompanying documents to the Customer Service Lobby at the address above.
If no resubmittal or reasonable attempt to move the project forward has been made within two-months of a submittal, the application will be
deemed dormant and a new application will be required.
