Code Amendment for Updated Floodplain Maps

Case: ZOA-22-02
This ordinance proposes amending Article VIII (Floodplain Control) of Chapter 26 of the Wheat Ridge Code of Laws to adopt the most current floodplain maps, known as the Digital Flood Insurance Rate Map (DFIRM). There are almost no changes to the limits of the flood hazard areas, but adoption of the most current DFIRM is required by the National Flood Insurance Program. Because this is an amendment to the zoning code, Planning Commission will be making a recommendation to City Council.
This meeting will be conducted as a virtual meeting and in person in City Council Chambers (7500 W. 29th Avenue) if allowed to meet in person on that date per COVID-19 restrictions. Provide public comment here on Wheat Ridge Speaks until noon on April 20 (the day before the meeting) by selecting the agenda item on which you want to comment.
