PERMIT REQUIREMENTS FOR THE REPAIR OF FLOOD-DAMAGED STRUCTURES WITHIN THE 100 YEAR FLOODPLAIN

In Findlay , all structures within the Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA), or the 100 year floodplain, are subject to flood development permit requirements.  For those properties that sustained flood damage and have flood insurance, a damage assessment from an insurance adjuster or licensed appraiser for those structures in the SFHA is to be submitted to the City of Findlay Zoning Office .  Two estimates from a general contractor are also acceptable.  An appraised value of the structure before the flood event occurred must also be submitted.  The tax appraised value from the County Auditor ’s website at http://www.hancock.iviewauditor.com/  is also appropriate. 

For uninsured property in the SFHA, two contractor’s estimates or a damage assessment from a licensed appraiser is acceptable.  An appraised value of the structure prior to the flood event or the tax appraised value from the County Auditor ’s Office is also appropriate.

You may do what is necessary to secure the building and continue the clean up effort.  Removing and disposing of damaged contents, carpeting, wallboard, and insulation is encouraged.  You may cover holes in roofs or walls and secure windows and doors to prevent further damage from inclement weather.  You may also remove sagging ceilings and shore up broken foundations to render the building safe to enter.

Please contact your local permit office at 419-424-7108 or 419-424-7121 for more information.

Additionally, any commercial property or multi-family dwellings containing 4 or more dwelling units must contact Wood County Building Inspection at 419-354-9190 for building permit requirements.    Permit applications and additional information is available online at:  http://wcbinspect.co.wood.oh.us.
