Elevation Certificates

Certificate Copies
The village maintains copies of Elevation Certificates for public inspection and insurance rating for structures located in or adjacent to the floodplain. See the Elevation Certificate for 6700 Howard Street for an example.

The Elevation Certificate documents the lowest floor elevation of any new building or substantial improvement built in the Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA).

These certificates are prepared by engineers, architects, or land surveyors registered in our state. Blank forms may be found on the FEMA website.
