The Henrico County Design Division develops plans and prepares construction documents for County roadway and drainage projects and provides review and approval for roadway and drainage projects prepared by County consultants. This division also is responsible for the Henrico County floodplain management program and manages the five regulated dams owned by the County. 

The Design Division coordinates with several other County departments—including Planning; Building Inspections; Recreation and Parks; Emergency Management; and other divisions of Public Works—to serve the needs of County residents.

On August 9, 2023, FEMA released the updated Elevation Certificate and Dry Floodproofing Certificate (2022 Edition). These are the new, current version and must be used for all Elevation Certificates and Dry Floodproofing Certificates signed and submitted on November 1, 2023 or later. Additional information is available in FEMA’s August 9, 2023 Memo.

NOTE: If you get a “Please Wait” error when trying to view the Elevation Certificate form, it is due to some incompatibility issues with Adobe PDFs and the alternative PDF viewer used by certain browsers. To view the document, download the file to your computer and open it using your system viewer. You may need to install the free Adobe Reader to view the document if you use a different PDF viewer and still experience issues.
