Floodplain Development


The development of the county's strategy for floodplain development began in October, 1997 when more than 350 individuals throughout the county helped to formulate a dynamic plan for floodplain management in the county entitled Protecting Our Resources (PDF).

This plan, since it was first adopted in February 1999, is reviewed on a biannual basis through the County's Floodplain Vision Board to ascertain that the plan remains updated, consistent, and coordinated in its implementation of the county's floodplain management strategy.

The most recent update was approved by the County Council.
