    Sec. 24.1-16.1. Possible flood plain. 
    To ensure that owners will have sufficient land upon which to build a structure which is flood free, compliance with floodway widths and the one hundred (100) year flood elevations contained within the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) flood insurance study (FIS) is mandatory. The city planner may require the subdivider to provide elevation and flood profiles based on a one hundred (100) year flood plain (which means a flood of a magnitude likely to happen, on the average, only once every century) sufficient to demonstrate the land to be completely free of the danger of flood water at an elevation of at least three (3) feet below any probable floor level of any building for human occupancy. (Ord. No. O-10-034, 4-27-10, eff. 7-1-10)
