This is an information guide only and is designed for use by the building industry, developers and property owners. This guide may or may not include all requirements of the City of Sevierville, the State of Tennessee, or the United States Government as it relates to the development of a project or to the construction of a building.
In order to safeguard life, health and property, and to promote public welfare, the Department of Code Enforcement of the City of Sevierville has established this policy enacting requirements for “stamped or sealed” drawings for building projects within the city limits of Sevierville.
To mitigate and manage potential flood property losses due to flood damage, the City of Sevierville is a participant in the National Flood Insurance Program. As a participant in the program, the City is required to create and enforce certain regulations in accordance with the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Both new and existing construction in a flood hazard area are subject to established requirements. For example, all new construction and additions to existing structures must have the floor elevated to a minimum height depending on a particular flood zone or location. The finish floor height must be determined by a professional surveyor or engineer prior to the issuance of any building permits. If an applicant is unsure if a property is in a flood hazard area, please contact the Department of Code Enforcement.
