    Accessory structures with the floor located below the flood protection level are designed to be flooded and should not be converted to uses that are incompatible with the flood hazard. Conversion to finished living space, blockage of flood vents, or installation of unprotected equipment (appliances, heating/cooling equipment, plumbing fixtures, etc) may violate the conditions of the floodplain development permit or the floodplain variance.
