Southern Standard Building Code

The City of Atlantis has adopted the Southern Standard Building Code. Parts of this code regulate the amounts and types of construction in the floodplain.

You must always consult with the building official when planning any kind of construction. When others violate our floodplain laws, it could affect your property. The building official should be made aware of such activities.
