Stormwater & Floodplain Management Ordinance Update (Proposed)
NEW INFORMATION:The Scottsdale City Council adopted an updated ordinance at the Aug. 27, 2012, City Council meeting.
The city re-organized the Stormwater and Floodplain Management Ordinance to make it more user-friendly. It is divided into five articles, each addressing specific sections of the Ordinance:
Article I: Floodplain Management-Special Flood Hazard Areas (FEMA floodplains)
Article II: Stormwater Regulation
Article III: Stormwater Quality
Article IV: Enforcement
Article V: Interpretations, Appeals and Variances
The requirements contained in Articles I, III, IV and V are mandated by federal and state regulatory agencies. The city does not have the authority to relax these requirements. No significant changes were made to Article II.
WHAT’S NEXT:We are now updating Article II. Because this article is not subject to federal or state regulations, the city has the flexibility to establish regulations specific to its needs. The city may consider making minor modifications to other articles based on public feedback.
The city will be hosting public meetings to gather input. We will be posting proposed revisions on this webpage for your review and comments as they become available.
The City Council will then vote on whether to adopt additional changes to the Ordinance.
Adopted ordinance (goes into effect Sept. 26, 2012): (pdf/136kb/30pp)
