PUBLIC NOTICE is given to all persons in the City of New Richmond that a public hearing will be held on May 1, 2008, at 5:30 p.m., to solicit comments on proposed floodplain zoning ordinance and map revisions that are required by state and federal law. These revisions govern development in mapped floodplain areas. The proposed ordinance and map revisions are on file in the office of the clerk at 156 East First street, during normal business hours. The modification is in the area of the New Richmond School District’s new grounds south of Richmond Way and east of Hwy 65.
The proposed regulations are intended to protect life, health and property in floodplain areas and will govern uses permitted in mapped floodplains. Activities such as dredging, filling, excavating and construction of buildings are generally allowed, but may be restricted according to which flood zone the property is in. A copy of the proposed ordinance will be on file and open for public inspection in the office of the clerk for a period of two weeks prior to this public hearing.
All persons interested are invited to attend this hearing and be heard. Written comments may be submitted to: City of New Richmond Planning & Zoning Committee, Mayor David Schnitzler, Chair.
