An amendment to section § 350-3.4 of the City Ordinances has been brought to the Northampton City Council at the recommendation of the Planning Board to change the floodplain zoning areas so that all floodplain areas and flood hazard areas are treated equally throughout the city. This is attempt to implement Sustainable Northampton and make things easier the public. These changes are modifications to an existing zoning district that has been in the ordinance since the 1970s.
