City to condense flood regulations

Thursday, April 29, 2021 by Elizabeth Pagano

In a move that may or may not indicate a Land Development Code rewrite will never happen, the city is proposing to streamline its floodplain regulations. The Development Services Department is proposing to add “Flood Hazard Areas” to Chapter 25-12 of the code. It’s an effort to simplify things by relocating the regulations from four sections of the code to one place – no new requirements are being added and nothing is being removed. Public comment on the change is open until May 3 and may be given here.
