The objectives of this Ordinance are to promote safety; minimize expenditure of public money and the need for rescue and relief efforts associated with flooding; minimize prolonged business interruptions and damage to public facilities and utilities located in flood prone areas; and to help maintain a stable tax base by providing for the sound use and development of flood prone areas in such a manner as to minimize adverse impact of new buildings and to minimize future flood blight areas; and to ensure that those obtaining building permits and potential buyers are notified of property that is in an SFHA.
