As of December 15, 2017, Bailey’s Prairie has waived all requirements for elevation certificates in the placement of FEMA temporary housing units in flood zones of Bailey’s Prairie. This waiver should expedite the placement of the FEMA housing units assigned to Bailey’s Prairie residents. FEMA temporary housing is only assigned to residents that are approved for housing through a completed FEMA application process.
FEMA contractors are required to obtain a building permit through the Bailey’s Prairie Floodplain Office for placement of a temporary housing unit, at no cost to residents.
For any question pertaining to elevation certificates or building permits, residents can contact Randy Stroud at 979-849-3141.
