No person, firm or corporation shall commence any development in the SFHA without first obtaining a development permit from the Village Clerk. The Village Clerk shall not issue a development permit if the proposed development does not meet the requirements of this chapter.
   (A)   Application for a development permit shall be made on a form provided by the Village Clerk. The application shall be accompanied by drawings of the site, drawn to scale showing property line dimensions and, in those parts of the site that are below the base flood elevation:
      (1)   Existing grade elevations and all changes in grade resulting from excavation or filling;
      (2)   The direction of flow of surface drainage and flood flows;
      (3)   The location of all water courses and drainage facilities;
      (4)   The location and dimensions of all buildings and additions to buildings; and
      (5)   The elevation of the lowest floor (including basement) of all buildings subject to the requirements of § 154.07 below.
   (B)   Upon receipt of an application for a development permit, the Village Clerk shall compare the elevation of the site to the base flood elevation. Any development located on land higher than the base flood elevation is not in the SFHA and therefore not subject to the requirements of this chapter.
   (C)   The Village Clerk shall inform the applicant of any and all other local, state and federal permits that may be required for this type of development activity. The development permit will only be issued on the condition that the other specified permits are obtained. The Village Clerk shall not issue a certificate of use or occupancy unless all required permits have been obtained.
   (D)   A filing fee for a development permit shall be $50.
