Culver Parks Master Plan Open House
The city has been working with a consultant to develop a Park Master Plan which will be used to guide the development of the park. A survey was completed this summer and the results have been compiled. Those results have been used to create concept boards which show possible ways in which the park could develop to meet the current and future needs of the community. The concepts will be presented to the public in an open house scheduled for September 8th between 4:30 and 6:30 p.m. at the park.

Floodplain Permit Requirements in Culver

There are portions of the city that are included in the FEMA Floodplain and a development permit is required if your property is located in the flood plain.  In order to ensure the city is following the ordinances, the Notice of Intent application is required for “development” in the city. 

Development is defined as Any man-made change to improved or unimproved real estate, including but not limited to buildings or other structures, mining, dredging, filling, grading, paving, excavation or drilling operations, or storage of equipment or materials.

In most cases, a Floodplain permit will not be required but in order to ensure one is submitted when required, we are asking that the Notice of Intent be completed with any development activity.

Please call Donna at 541-546-6494 with any questions.

In our efforts to be especially cautious in protecting our vulnerable populations, the City of Culver has temporarily suspended the Community Lunch Program.  We would really appreciate your assistance in getting the word out to everyone who may be affected.  Please do not hesitate to contact City Hall at 541-5446-6494 with any questions.
