Post-Harvey Regulatory Changes
DURATION 2 minute read
Harris County has issued revisions to its Floodplain Regulations, which will impact future developments in the unincorporated areas of Harris County, Texas. Included below is a copy of the current Harris County Floodplain Regulations as well as a Harris County Floodplain Regulation Quick Reference Guide that summarizes the new regulations.
The floodplain regulations within the incorporated areas of Harris County have not yet been revised, but the City of Houston City Council is scheduled to vote on a new Floodplain Ordinance on March 21st. We will be reporting on the status of the City Council vote and possible changes shortly after the City Council meeting. Jones|Carter is monitoring the actions of other Cities and Counties across the state as they consider floodplain regulation revisions, and we will be providing updates as these entities release information about their planned regulation revisions.
If you have any specific questions regarding the implementation timing of the upcoming regulation revisions, or if you would like to meet individually to review a specific project with respect to these new floodplain regulations, contact our team.
