A locally adopted elevation standards shall apply to any Shaded X or X zone as identified on the effective DFIRMs for Dare County. These areas may be vulnerable to flooding from storm surge, wind-driven tides, and excessive rainfall associated with storm systems. Many of these areas have flooded during past storm events and continue to remain at risk to flooding. Therefore, an elevation standard and other floodplain development standards have been determined by the Town of Duck to be appropriate for these Shaded X and X zones as defined in § 150.05. All development activities in any Shaded X or X zone shall conform to the provisions set forth in this chapter.
