  7. Public Hearing: Docket BCCP-20-0001 Geologic Hazard Mapping-Related Amendments
    In 2017 the county updated its geologic hazard mapping with post-flood grant funding. The updated mapping draws on best available data and methods to provide much more robust and granular geologic hazard data than was previously available. Staff presented Planning Commission (PC) with an update on the new mapping in March, 2018. With the support of PC and Board of County Commissioners staff requested quality control and peer review feedback from the Colorado Geologic Survey (CGS), with plans to ultimately seek BCCP adoption of revised mapping to replace the BCCP’s current Geologic Hazard and Constraint Areas Map. The county’s consultant executed minor map revisions based on CGS feedback. Staff requests approval of the new geologic hazard map, as well as minor revisions to the BCCP Geology element to appropriately reference the updated geologic hazard mapping.
