East Montpelier Planning Commission hosting September 18th Public Forum on Flood Hazard Area Regulations

The Planning Commission will host a Public Forum on September 18, 2014 to discuss proposed changes to our Flood Hazard Area Regulations.

In response to costly flood damage over the past several years, the state Legislature recently passed a law offering increased disaster relief funding to towns that adopt new and more restrictive land use regulations in flood plains and river corridors. The East Montpelier Planning Commission has been studying how our current Flood Hazard Area Regulations (Article 9 of the town’s Land Use & Development Regulations) would need to be revised to take advantage of these incentives and to decrease the likelihood of flood damage in the community. The Planning Commission, with assistance from the Central Vermont Regional Planning Commission, has drafted changes to the Flood Hazard Area Regulations. An informational public forum on flood hazards and the proposed revisions to the Flood Hazard Area Regulations will be held on September 18th at 7:00 pm at the Emergency Services Facility Public Room (Fire Department). All residents are welcome.
