In order to accomplish its purposes, this chapter uses the following methods:
A.   Restricting or prohibiting uses that are dangerous to health, safety, and property in times of flood, or that cause excessive increases in flood heights or velocities;
B.   Requiring that uses vulnerable to floods, including facilities which serve such uses, be protected against flood damage at the time of initial construction;
C.   Controlling the alteration of natural floodplains, stream channels, and natural protective barriers, which help accommodate floodwaters;
D.   Controlling filling, grading, dredging, and other development which may increase flood damage; and
E.   Preventing or regulating the construction of flood barriers which will unnaturally divert floodwaters or which may increase flood hazards in other areas. (Ord. 914, 9-22-2009; amd. Ord. 1428, 4- -2020)
