SUMMARY:

                                          

An amendment to the Land Development Code Chapter 12-10 regarding floodplain management is a result of a mandate from the State of Florida Division of Emergency Management.  The amendment will enable the City to remain compliant with the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and the Community Rating System (CRS).  By maintaining the City’s CRS rating, our citizens are able to enjoy discounts on their flood insurance premiums.  The proposed language will replace the existing Chapter 12-10 in its entirety and would satisfy the requirements of the State. 

 

 

 

On May 8, 2018, the Planning Board unanimously recommended approval of the proposed amendment to the Land Development Code Chapter 12-10. Floodplain Management.

 

Section 14-1-133 Local Government Amendments to Florida Building Code is being created.
