Floodplain Management


The LWV of P/CC supports a strict interpretation of the flood plain ordinance, limiting the issuance of special use permits and variances, and providing adequate methods to find violations and correct them.

We advocate:


  • Environmentally sound management of flood plain areas in Plano and Collin County.

  • The formation of an Environmental Commission to review requests for building permanent structures in a flood plain, and provide the Planning and Zoning Commission and City Council with information outlining the projected effects of such structures.

  • Local governments should be concerned with the quality of the creeks within their city limits, and whether encroachment of development in the flood plain area will alter the ecosystem, or have any residual effects on the Trinity Water System.
