This is a reminder concerning the FEMA Elevation Certificate form. In accordance with FEMA’s requirements, Elevation Certificates that are submitted on or after January 1, 2017 must be completed using the latest edition (2015) of Form 086-0-33. This is the current approved form. The grace period allowing the use of the older version of the form ends on December 31, 2016.
FEMA also states that they will not accept writing on the form in areas other than in the designated places. NOTE: Section G4 of the form is where the permit number is to be written (nowhere else). Please also note that Charlotte County requires both an “Under Construction” and a “Finished Construction” Elevation Certificate for new structures in A, AE, V, and VE flood zones.
The Elevation Certificate form and instructions are found on FEMA’s website: www.fema.gov/media-library/assets/documents/160 as well as by a link provided on Community Development Department’s website: at www.charlottecountyfl.gov/services/buildingconstruction/Pages/Elevation-Certification-Requests.aspx.
