Summary

Capital Development Committee. Local government floodplain
management regulations for development in floodplain areas must equal
or exceed the federal emergency management agency's national flood
insurance program's (national flood insurance program) minimum design
and construction criteria and must comply with the Colorado water
conservation board's (CWCB) rules and regulations for regulatory
floodplains in Colorado. Not all local governments participate in the
national flood insurance program.
The bill requires the office of the state architect to develop a state
floodplain management program (program) by June 30, 2025, which will
ensure compliance with the minimum floodplain management criteria of
the national flood insurance program and with the CWCB's rules and
regulations for regulatory floodplains in Colorado. The program applies
to development on state-owned land in counties and municipalities that
do not participate in the national flood insurance program. At the
discretion of the office of the state architect, the program may also apply
to state-leased properties in counties and municipalities that do not
participate in the national flood insurance program.
