bulletWalls. The total length of existing external walls modified or replaced over the life of the structure does not exceed 25% of the total original perimeter of the structure.
bulletBasements. New basements are permitted only where it is not possible due to limited lot size, steep slopes, or high-quality natural features to move the structure back from the water in compliance with county relocation standards. (Click Here) Expansion of an existing basement is permitted.
