All development in The City of Oak Ridge North needs local and state permits. Contact the Public Works Department at 281.292.4648 for direction and guidance before you build, fill, place a manufactured home, or otherwise develop.
The zoning ordinance, flood control ordinance, and the international Building Codes have special provisions regulating construction and other developments within floodplains. Without these provisions, flood insurance through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) would not be available to property owners in The City of Oak Ridge North.
Any development in the floodplain without a permit is illegal: such activity can be reported to City Hall at 281.292.4648.
