24.        ZTA-2004-008.  Flood Hazard Overlay District (FH).  An Ordinance to amend Sec 30.3.01, Intent, Sec 30.3.02.1, Definitions – Generally, Sec 30.3.02.2, Determination of Floodway & Floodway Fringe in the Approximated Flood Plain, Sec 30.3.05.1.2, By Right W/in the Floodway Fringe, Sec 30.3.07, Amendment of the Flood Hazard Overlay District, & delete Sec 30.3.06.2, Finding of County Engineer, of Chapter 18, Zoning, of the Albemarle County Code.  The boundaries of the Flood Hazard Overlay District are those areas w/in the County subject to inundation by the waters of the one hundred year flood, based upon maps resulting from a flood insurance study prepared by the Federal Insurance Administration, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).  Recent detailed studies prepared by FEMA have resulted in new maps that will establish revised boundaries of the Flood Hazard Overlay District.  This ordinance would amend Sec 30.3.01, Intent, to also refer to FEMA; amend Sec 30.3.02.1, Definitions -- Generally, to specify that the source for delineating the boundaries of the Flood Hazard Overlay District is the new flood insurance study prepared by FEMA, effective February 4, 2005; amend Sec 30.3.02.2, Determination of Floodway & Floodway Fringe in the Approximated Flood Plain, to provide that the procedure applies only to determine the floodway fringe in the approximated flood plain; amend Sec 30.3.07, Amendment of the Flood Hazard Overlay District, to add that the boundaries of the district may be revised, amended or modified upon completion of an authorized fill operation (superseding & being the basis for deleting Sec 30.3.06.2, Findings of County Engineer), or where changes are indicated through FEMA’s issuance of letters of map amendment or letters of map revision; amend Sec 30.3.05.1.2, By Right W/in the Floodway Fringe, to allow pedestrian & multi-use paths w/in County parks & dedicated greenways, & footbridges. 

25.         ZMA-2004-019.  Flood Hazard Overlay District (FH).   This proposed amendment to Chapter 18, Zoning, of the Albemarle County Code, would amend the zoning map to change the boundaries of the Flood Hazard Overlay District (FHOD).  The FHOD exists for the purpose of providing safety & protection from flooding by restricting certain uses, development & occupancy of lands w/in the district because they are subject to inundation by the waters of the one hundred year flood.  The district’s regulations also assure that Albemarle County will continue in the regular program of the National Flood Insurance Program.  The boundaries of the FHOD are based upon maps resulting from a flood insurance study prepared by the Federal Insurance Administration, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in 1980.  Recent detailed studies by FEMA have resulted in the creation of new maps that will establish revised boundaries of the lands subject to inundation by the waters of the one hundred year flood &, correspondingly, the boundaries of the FHOD, affecting approxi 4,120 Ps w/in Albemarle County. As a result of this proposed amendment to the zoning map, some Ps, or portions thereof, will be placed w/in the FHOD, some will be removed from the FHOD, some will remain in the FHOD but w/ the FHOD’s boundaries changing, & some will remain in the FHOD but w/ no boundary change.  The general usage w/in the FHOD includes certain agricultural & recreational uses to public utilities & other public service facilities; various water-related uses such as flood warning aids, water monitoring devices, flood control or environmental restoration measures, dams, docks, bridges, ferries, pump stations; certain retaining walls & revetments; hydroelectric power generation; aircraft land strips; & certain towers & fences.  The FHOD also prohibits the establishment of structures designed or intended for human habitation; the storage of various petroleum-based liquids, explosives & other materials; the storage of machinery & vehicles as a primary use; & the stockpiling of debris, logs, junk cars & similar materials.  The FHOD does not establish a density range, though it does prohibit establishing structures designed or intended for human habitation.  The general usage w/in floodplains described in the Comprehensive Plan discourages development & inappropriate uses, the stripping of land, & the creation of impervious surfaces w/in floodplain lands because such development can result in increased danger to life, health & property, increased flood levels, & degradation of water quality & the natural & man-made environment.  The Comprehensive Plan does not establish a density range w/in the FHOD.
