Floodplain Review Board
The Floodplain Review Board interprets regulations or determines the location of a floodway or floodplain when a dispute arises between an appellant and the Flood Control District. The Board may also make decisions to allow variances to the extent permitted by State law and by the Floodplain Regulations.
The Floodplain Review Board meets when matters are appealed to the Board, typically concurrent with Flood Control Advisory Board meetings when possible or as business necessitates.

- Allow variances from the terms or regulations adopted pursuant to this article to the extent permitted by section 48-3609, subsection B, paragraph 7 if, owing to peculiar conditions, a strict interpretation would work an unnecessary hardship and if in granting the variance the general intent and purposes of this article and the regulations will be preserved.
