Pros & Cons of revisions to Ch. 19 of city code, by Councilman Greg Travis

Houston’s current code only applies to property in the 100-year floodplain and protects 1 foot above 100-year flood elevation. The proposed revisions would include property in the 500-year floodplain and protect 2 feet of 500-year flood elevation. It would also include no net fill in the 500-year floodplain. The 100-year floodplain is land that is predicted to flood during a 100-year storm, which has a 1% chance of occurring in any given year. The 500-year floodplain has a .2% chance of occurring.
