Safety campaign aims to ensure flood property repairs are done right
The 2013 June flood impacted over 2,600 buildings in Calgary, requiring plenty of repairs and new construction work to be completed in homes, businesses and multi-residential buildings. Property owners are being reminded to obtain applicable permits, and to have necessary inspections completed to ensure their flood repairs have resulted in a safe building.
We're also reminding property owners that have applied for the Government of Alberta’s Disaster Recovery Program (DRP) that the deadline to obtain permits is March 31, 2014. If you haven't obtained permits before this date may not be eligible for assistance from the DRP in the event of a 2014 flood. For more information contact the DRP office at 1-888-671-1111.
Calgarians are encouraged to visit calgary.ca/floodrecovery, or to contact 311 to learn more about permitting and inspection requirements for homes, businesses and multi-family dwellings.
