MetadataShow full item record
The Board of Multnomah County Commissioners adopted amendments to the county's Mood Hazard ordinance currently regulating development within the 100-year fioodplain, within a watercourse, or within the area of 1996-storm Inundation. The amendments adopt new FEMA DFIRM maps and the associated Flood Insurance Study for Multnomah County by reference, align county code with recent changes to the Oregon model flood ordinance and require review of development within the 1996- storm inundation areas only inside Metro's Jurisdictional Boundary. Development within the 100-year fioodplain, or in a watercourse, will continue to require review county wide.
