Substantive Changes:

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) maintains maps of areas around the country that are prone to flooding. They update these maps periodically. When communities adopt flood-hazard regulations that apply within the areas mapped by FEMA, communities in those areas are eligible to participate in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), which subsidizes flood insurance. The regulations limit the kinds of development allowed in the areas likely to flood, and specify building regulations that limit damage when there is a flood.

To maintain compliance with federal programs — and maintain the ability for community members to obtain flood insurance in Portland — we must update the maps of flood-prone areas in the city and some of our regulations. This project adopted the new maps and regulations.

Although every effort is made to ensure that the two texts are identical, errors or differences may remain. It is the user's responsibility to verify the legal accuracy of all provisions.
