- Identify flood prone areas throughout the County and sources of flooding
- Identify loss reduction measures through effective mitigation strategies
- Raise awareness of the beneficial functions of the floodplain.
The Plan was developed and organized following the ten step process under Section 510, “Floodplain Management Planning”, National Flood Insurance Program Community Rating System Coordinator’s Manual (April 6, 2016 Draft Edition). The ten step planning process includes:
