Rule 1501:22-1-03 | Floodplain management requirements for counties and municipal corporations containing coastal flood hazard areas.
(A) The floodplain management criteria contained in rule 1501:22-1-04 of the Administrative Code shall apply to all counties and municipal corporations containing coastal flood hazard areas which are not participating in the national flood insurance program. Such communities shall adopt resolutions or ordinances governing development within the coastal flood hazard areas which meet or exceed the standards of rule 1501:22-1-04 of the Administrative Code. These regulations must be legally enforceable, applied uniformly throughout the county or municipal corporation to all privately and publicly owned land within the coastal flood hazard area, and must take precedence over any less restrictive or conflicting local laws, resolutions, ordinances, or codes. The criteria of rule 1501:22-1-04 of the Administrative Code are to be considered minimum standards, a county or municipal corporation may exceed these criteria by adopting more stringent floodplain management regulations.
(B) A county or municipal corporation that participates in the national flood insurance program shall comply with the floodplain management criteria set forth in the national flood insurance program regulations found in Part 60 of Title 44 of the Code of Federal Regulations.
