Defining The Town Floodplain After September 11th

ARD-town-floodOur Town is still recovering from the affects of the severe flooding that occurred on September 11, 2013. An essential part of the long-term recovery will be to redefine the area in the Estes Valley that is now considered to be a floodplain. This will determine where homes can be built, or rebuilt, in the future and what land might eventually be retired.

Will Birchfield, Town of Estes Park Chief Building Official and Floodplain Manager, will describe some of the likely revisions to the Town Floodplain Regulations as well as provide a timeline for a Post-Flood Floodplain Management Report. He will also discuss the long-term recovery of the floodplains in the Estes Valley including Fish Creek, Big Thompson, Fall River, and Black Canyon watersheds. This information will valuable to all citizens of Estes Park.

The meeting will take place on Friday, November 8, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. in the Hondius Room of the Estes Valley Public Library.

ARD is dedicated to preserving the unique mountain character and natural beauty of the Estes Valley by fostering appropriate and responsible development.
