1.  The issuance of the variance may result in increased premium rates for flood insurance;

3.  If the structure is a dwelling unit or business, as defined by A.R.S. §26-321, the land upon which the structure is located is ineligible for exchange of land pursuant to the flood relocation and land exchange program provided for by Title 26, Chapter 2, Article 2 of the Arizona Revised Statutes.

4.  The original of the above written notice shall be recorded with the Pinal County Recorder in a manner so that it appears in the chain of title of the affected parcel of land. Proof of such recordation shall be maintained on file with the District and be available to any agency requiring any subsequent permits.
