The National Flood Insurance Program requires a damage assessment to be completed of each structure in the FEMA mapped floodplain that has been damaged by flooding. If your residences &/or commercial structures has suffered flooding, please contact Planning & Zoning. You will benefit if you have an NFIP flood insurance policy, as you will have Increased Cost of Compliance (ICC) coverage to aid you. If you plan to rebuild &/or make repairs, no matter how minor you, must apply for a Floodplain Development Permit if you are in the mapped FEMA Floodplain.

The Enhanced 9-1-1 system requires addresses for all homes and businesses in the County. Your new 9-1-1 physical address will help emergency services find your home faster, saving valuable minutes in response time when you dial 9-1-1 (click here for form).
Please clearly post your new address number at your driveway entrance or house so that it is visible from the road. (If the house is more than 75 feet from the road, be sure to post your address on your driveway entrance.) The address numbers at your driveway entrance or house should be a minimum of 4 inches tall and a contrasting color to be easily seen.
Custer County appreciates your cooperation implementing this life-saving service. Failure to have your physical address posted may result in extended response times should you or your family need emergency services.
