NEW General Floodplain Development Permit (FDP) 2016-1 Available for Review and Comment

Per recent updates to the floodplain development regulations and related provisions in the Boulder Land Use Code, the Boulder County Engineer has issued General Floodplain Development Permit (FDP) 2016-1.

The General FDP covers project types and uses in the Floodplain Overlay ("FO") District that have been determined by the County Engineer to meet the standards set forth in Section 4-404.1(B) of the Boulder County Land Use Code, which, among other criteria, includes those projects types and uses that have been determined to have minimal or no impact on flood hazards.

The General FDP allows certain projects and uses to take place without the need for an Individual Floodplain Development Permit. Some projects permitted by the General FDP still require notification of the County Engineer. Learn more on the Floodplain Development Permit website.

Pending a two-week comment period, General FDP 2016-1 will go into effect at close-of-business on Monday, Oct. 31, 2016.
