The boundaries of the zoning districts shall be determined by scaling distances on the Flood Insurance Rate Map.
Subd. 1. Where interpretation is needed as to the exact location of the boundaries of the district as shown on the Flood Insurance Rate Map, as for example where there appears to be a conflict between a mapped boundary and actual field conditions and there is a formal appeal of the decision of the Zoning Administrator, the Board of Adjustment shall make the necessary interpretation.
Subd. 2. All decisions will be based on elevations on the regional (1% chance) flood profile, the ground elevations that existed on the site at the time the city adopted its initial flood plain ordinance or on the date of the first National Flood Insurance Program map showing the area within the regulatory flood plain, if earlier, and other available technical data.
Subd. 3. Persons contesting the location of the district boundaries will be given a reasonable opportunity to present their case to the Board of Adjustment and to submit technical evidence.
