Title
Amending various sections of Chapter 28 of the Madison General Ordinances to update the Chapter 28 floodplain maps in order to remain eligible for the national flood insurance program.
Body
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS:  This routine amendment of the Chapter 28 zoning code floodplain provisions is required by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to update the Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) and Flood Insurance Study (FIS) and Flood Storage District (FSD) maps produced by FEMA and the DNR.  With the updating of these maps, the City remains eligible to participate in the national flood insurance program that is available to some property owners in the city with structures in the floodplain area.  In addition to the adoption of the new floodplain maps referenced above, this amendment also makes minor text amendments to Chapter 28 to maintain consistency with Wisconsin's model floodplain ordinance.
