We're looking to change how we regulate development in the floodplain - the area next to a creek or river the floods. Right now, you can build in a part of the floodplain. Under proposed changes, we would no longer be able to build new structures in the floodplain.
This would help protect the floodplain and communities around it. We cannot control how much it rains or prevent flooding in the floodplain. But, we can make changes that will keep people safe and keep flooding near creeks from getting worse.
