Legal Document- Regulation: Vermont Flood Hazard Area and River Corridor Rule

Abstract

The purpose of this Rule is to:

(a) Clarify how the state of Vermont will regulate development exempt from municipal regulation in flood hazard areas and river corridors to ensure compliance with National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) criteria and enhance flood resilience.

(b) Avoid and minimize the loss of life and property, the disruption of commerce, the impairment of the tax base, and the extraordinary public expenditures and demands on public services that result from flooding.

(c) Ensure that the selection, design, creation, and use of development exempt from municipal regulation and located in flood hazard areas and river corridors is safe and accomplished in a manner that is consistent with the public health, safety, and welfare, and does not impair stream equilibrium, floodplain services, or the river corridor.
