(A) The Zoning Administrator shall review all proposed subdivisions to determine whether the subdivision lies in a flood hazard area as defined elsewhere by ordinance. If the Zoning Administrator finds the subdivision to be so located, the Zoning Administrator shall forward plans and materials to the Indiana Department of Natural Resources for review and comment. The Zoning Administrator shall require appropriate changes and modifications in order to assure that:
(1) It is consistent with the need to minimize flood damages;
(2) All public utilities and facilities, such as sewer, gas, electrical, and water systems are located and constructed to minimize or eliminate flood damage;
(3) Adequate drainage is provided so as to reduce exposure to flood hazards;
(4) Onsite waste disposal systems, if provided, will be so located and designed to avoid impairment of them or contamination from them during the occurrence of the regulatory flood.
(B) Developers shall record the 100 year flood elevation on all subdivision plats containing lands (identified elsewhere by this chapter) within a flood hazard area prior to submitting the plats for approval by the Plan Commission.
(C) All owners of manufactured home parks or subdivisions located within the Special Flood Hazard Area identified as Zone A on the community's Flood Hazard Boundary Map or Flood Insurance Rate Map shall develop an evacuation plan for those lots located in the Special Flood Hazard Area and file it with the local Plan Commission and have it filed with and approved by the appropriate community emergency management authorities.
