   On October 20, 2016, the Volusia County Council passed Resolution 2016-142 waiving building application, permit, and plan review fees for repair and reconstruction of damaged commercial and residential structures in the unincorporated county. To be eligible for the waiver, the contractor or property owner applying for the permit must provide proof of storm damage in the form of a completed Hurricane Damage Verification Affidavit at the time of application. The waiver will only apply to storm damage related permit applications received on or before December 31, 2016.


Preliminary flood hazard data (preliminary data) is available for selected areas of Volusia County.  It provides the public an early look at their home or community‘s projected risk to flood hazards. Preliminary data may include: new or revised Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM), Flood Insurance Study (FIS) reports, and FIRM Databases.  Click to review the areas within Volusia County that are affected.
