Chapter 25 ZONING ORDINANCE.
Article 19. FP Flood Plain Overlay Zone.
Sec. 25-19-20. Flood protection required.
The flood protection required by this article is based on sound
engineering principles. The flood plain hazard areas are subject to flooding
(one percent chance in any one year) which may result in flood losses by uses
which are inadequately elevated or otherwise protected from flood damage. The
regulatory provisions that follow reflect a reasonable attempt to analyze the
flood hazard for specific lands. This does not imply, however, that all areas
outside those designated as "FP" flood plain overlay zones will be free from
flooding or flood damage. (Amended during the March 2009 supplement.)
