Development

A development permit is required before you build, locate, or substantially improve any structure designed for occupancy as a residence, place of business, camp, nonresidential/commercial development or improvement thereof, industrial development or improvement thereof, or place any mobile home upon any lot in Rapides Parish. Permits are required to ensure that proposed development projects meet the requirements of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and the community's floodplain management ordinance.
 
The review process is typically done in conjunction with your building permit application, but in some cases needs to be issued independently.
