Public Hearings

The public hearing process for adopting new floodplain mapping and associated code amendments requires that staff recommendations are presented at one or more Planning Commission public hearings, and then, with recommended approval by the Planning Commission, are brought to the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) for one or more public hearings where a decision on the staff recommendation is made.

More information, including meeting dates and times, will be available here and on the Land Use Department’s docket webpage. Check regularly for updates. You can also view the BOCC’s and Planning Commission’s upcoming agendas to stay up-to-date on project activities.
