FEMA Severe Repetitive Loss (SRL) Grant Program Voluntary Home Elevation and Demolition/Reconstruction Program – Virginia Beach, Virginia
Parrish-Point provided civil engineering and land surveying services in the preparation of engineering plans for the elevation of building sites located within the floodplain (identified in the FEMA Severe Repetitive Loss Program). The City of Virginia Beach required Site Plan development for each of the (9) nine site in order to issue required building permits. Parrish-Point conducted the physical survey of each property; using elevations obtained from City of Virginia Beach Benchmarks, to be set on each property, then provided:
- Layout of each site
- Existing building elevations
- Calculated Proposed Building Elevations for redevelopment, and construction
- Created Erosion and sediment control plans and documents for all proposed construction work
Following completion of Construction Activities, a National Flood insurance Program (NFIP) Elevation Certificate will be prepared for each property.
The overall objective of elevation is to raise the height of the lowest floor of the structure so that it meets the required level of protection based on flood zone data for the specific location. When a structure is properly elevated, the living area (lowest floor of the structure) will be above the most severe flood levels, such as the 500-year flood in many cases. Through the City’s SRL program, 90 percent of the cost for elevation is funded by Federal dollars while the remaining 10 percent of the total cost of the elevation is absorbed by the property owner.
