VIEW MAPS & PROVIDE FEEDBACK
The interactive webmap (use the button above) shows detailed flood risk zones and related FEMA map amendments or revisions that are currently regulated throughout unincorporated Boulder County as Floodplain Overlay Zoning District. This map will update as new FEMA maps become effective throughout Boulder County and as the Boulder County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) adopts best available information.
Visit the interactive webmap (use button above) to view the proposed changes to flood risk zones that are currently under review by Boulder County via Land Use Docket Z-19-0001 based on receipt by Boulder County of FEMA’s Preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) for all stream reaches in the Colorado Hazard Mapping Program (CHAMP), and on best available information for Rock Creek and Coal Creek. In CHAMP reaches, staff have proposed that the Preliminary FIRMs supersede and replace the draft CHAMP floodplain maps that were adopted as Boulder County Floodplain and Floodway in 2017 and 2018. The differences between the Premliminary FIRMs and the draft CHAMP maps are largely based on clean up and smoothing of boundaries of areas already being regulated as the Floodplain Overlay (FO) district. Residents and property owners may comment on maps (button above). Staff will address comments before presenting zoning map amendments to the Boulder County Board of County Commissioners at their Thursday, Dec. 12, 2019 public hearing with a recommendation for approval.
