Sec. 25-19-50. Building permit requirements.

The following building permit requirements shall apply in the AE flood plain overlay zones:
(1) Within this zone no building permit or other entitlement shall be issued nor shall any structure be erected unless certification is provided to the community development director from a registered professional engineer that the cumulative effect of the proposed development when combined with all other existing and anticipated development will not increase the water surface elevation of the base flood zone more than one foot at any point within the community.
(2) Within the AE zone residential structures shall have the lowest floor, including a basement, elevated to or above the base flood elevation as specified on the FIRM and Flood Insurance Study for the city of Woodland.
(3) Within the AE zone nonresidential structures shall meet the requirements set forth in subsection (2) of this section or be adequately flood proofed below the base flood elevation. If flood proofing is proposed, a professional engineer shall provide to the community development director calculations certifying that the hydrostatic forces, velocities, uplift, and the like, have been designed for.
(4) No building permit shall be issued within the AE zone unless satisfactory evidence has been provided to the city engineer that new or replacement public and on-site utilities and facilities are located and constructed to minimize or eliminate flood damage and infiltration.
(5) No building permit shall be issued for a project within these zones unless satisfactory evidence is provided to the community development director that all necessary permits have been received from those governmental agencies from which approval is required by federal or state law.
