City of Fort Wayne Zoning Ordinance Floodplain Regulations Amendment
As a follow up to an April 2017 Community Assistance Visit by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), FEMA directed the City of Fort Wayne to update and reorganize the floodplain section of the Zoning Ordinance. DPS staff worked with staff of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) and FEMA on this reorganization; the reorganized ordinance is based on the State’s Model Ordinance for Flood Hazard Areas. Both IDNR and FEMA approved the draft language for this update in March 2018. This update should bring the City’s floodplain regulations into full compliance with IDNR and FEMA requirements, and allow for the City’s continued participation in the National Flood Insurance Program. The Fort Wayne Plan Commission will hold a public hearing on the proposed amendment as part of its May 14th hearing.
