The purpose of the floodplain is to promote the public health, safety, and general welfare and
to minimize public and private losses due to flood conditions in specific areas by provisions
- Restrict or prohibit uses which are dangerous to health, safety, and property due to water or erosion hazards, which result in damaging increases in erosion or in flood heights or velocities;
- Require that uses vulnerable to floods, including facilities which serve such uses, be protected against flood damage at the time of initial construction;
- Control the alteration of natural floodplains, stream channels, and natural protective barriers which are involved in the accommodation of flood waters;
- Control filling, grading, dredging, and other development which may increase erosion or flood damage;
- Prevent or regulate the construction of flood barriers which will unnaturally divert floodwaters or which may increase flood hazards to other lands; and,
- Make federally subsidized flood insurance available for structures and their contents in the City by fulfilling the requirements of the National Flood Insurance Program.
Planning / Zoning Department News & Updates
The Grissom Air Reserve Base (ARB) Joint Land Use Study (JLUS) is a community driven, cooperative, strategic planning effort between Grissom ARB, the surrounding local jurisdictions, and local community stakeholders. The JLUS will identify means of promoting land use, urban growth, and economic development that is compatible with the mission of the 434th Air Refueling Wing (434 ARW). Additionally, the JLUS will seek ways to reduce the military operational impacts on adjacent lands, protect the health and safety of the surrounding population, and maximize compatible economic development potential of the Grissom Aeroplex.
