For those of you who have not been following all of the details related to construction in the Natomas Basin late in 2008 the flood zone designation assigned to properties in the Natomas Basin changed to AE. This change all but ended the viability of development in this area. Since that time the Army Corps of Engineers has been diligently working to upgrade the levees so that the flood zone designation could be improved. All of this hard work is beginning to pay off. FEMA has advised the City that June 16, 2015 will be the date the designation is officially improved to A99. Once the flood zone designation is changed to A99 it will be possible to begin issuing building permits for new construction and substantial improbements.
The City expects to receive a Letter of Final Determination from FEMA on or around March 30, 2015. City staff is prepared to accept building permit applications beginning on April 1, 2015. Building permits could then be issued beginning June 16, 2015.
The following measured approach to permit issuance has been recommended to City Council, and is contingent on their approval:
1,000 single family units500 multi-family units
1,000 single family units
