Federal regulations state that communities participating in the NFIP must take flood hazards into account in all official actions relating to land management and use. This workshop will review the available tools for implementing comprehensive local floodplain management programs that use local authorities to proactively manage land uses in mapped floodplains and other hazardous areas. Participants will learn about strategies for integrating flood hazards with other local priorities in comprehensive plans and for promoting flood safe land use patterns through local regulations. We will apply these principles to case studies.
