In order to accomplish its purposes, this title uses the following methods:
   A.   Restrict or prohibit uses that are dangerous to health, safety or property in times of flood, or cause excessive increases in flood heights or velocities;
   B.   Require that uses vulnerable to floods, including public facilities which serve such uses, be developed or constructed to at least minimum standards or to otherwise minimize flood damage;
   C.   Control the alteration of natural floodplains, stream channels, and natural protective barriers, which are involved in the accommodation of floodwaters;
   D.   Control filling, grading, dredging and other development which may increase flood damage;
   E.   Prevent or regulate the construction of flood barriers which will unnaturally divert floodwaters or which may increase flood hazards to other lands;
   F.   Distinguish between the land use regulations applied to the floodway within the regulated flood hazard area and those applied to that portion of the regulated flood hazard area not contained in the floodway;
   G.   Apply more restrictive land use regulations within the floodway of the regulated flood hazard area; and
   H.   Ensure that regulations and minimum standards balance the greatest public good with the least private injury. (Ord. 15-16, 10-5-2015)
