Minimizing potential flood hazards and maintaining wildlife habitat and open space values along Trail Creek are important goals of the comprehensive plan. Limited development may be permitted in the Trail Creek Flood Damage Prevention Overlay, and in other Floodplain areas identified by FEMA maps.
Development includes any activity that may potentially affect flood flows. This includes all land disturbance (including grading and the construction of fills for any purpose) as well as all building construction.
For more information on the flood plain regulations, see Title 11: Flood Control of the municiple code, and Article 9: Special Districts and Article 13: Property Development Plan and Resource Protection found in Title 10: Zoning.
