Chapter 25 ZONING ORDINANCE.
Article 19. FP Flood Plain Overlay Zone.
Sec. 25-19-30. Flood insurance rate map.
The map designating areas in the city subject to flooding shall be the
official Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) provided to the city by the Federal
Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) dated April 2, 2002, as amended, and is
hereby incorporated by reference. The map delineates those areas determined to
be subject to flooding based upon evidence of past flood events, and elevation
data pertinent to the one hundred year flood, or that which has a one percent
chance of occurrence in any one year. Based on evaluation of this map, the city
shall seek to eliminate or reduce flood losses by regulating building
construction and land use within the flood plain hazard areas identified
thereon. (Amended during the March 2009 supplement.)
