Construction of new structures elevated on piers or piling above the flood plain and the paving of areas within the flood plain boundary requires special approval from the Village Council after review and recommendation by the Planning Commission and recommendation from the Village Engineer through consultation with the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality. To obtain special approval, the following conditions must be met:
(a) Supports must not impede the natural flow of water or disrupt the flood plain holding capacity.
(b) Paving shall have proper drainage facilities installed to prohibit contamination of the flood plains and water.
(c) There shall be no increase in the rate or volume of run-off.
(d) There shall be no substantial detriment to the surrounding natural environment. Exhibits submitted for review to the Planning Commission will need to provide sufficient detailed information with respect to supports, spacing, height, anchorage and topographical data.
