Section 11-19-5

Subdivision regulations generally.

In addition to land-use restrictions commensurate with the degree of the flood hazards in various parts of the area, there shall be such subdivision regulations as may be necessary:

(1) To prevent the inappropriate development of flood-prone lands;

(2) To encourage the appropriate location and elevation of streets, sewers and water systems and the reservation of adequate and convenient open space for utilities;

(3) To provide for adequate drainage so as to minimize exposure to flood hazards and to prevent the aggravation of flood hazards; and

(4) To require such minimum elevation of all new developments as required.
