17.104.010 Purpose.

There are some areas of the City, which, under present conditions, are not suited for permanent occupancy or residence by persons or property for the reason that they are subject to periodical flooding and other hazards. These lands pertain to property below 1,265 feet above mean sea level, which may be subject to floodwaters. Therefore, for the public safety and interest, health, comfort, convenience, preservation of the public peace, order and the public welfare, the City Council has created a zone classification within which it is unlawful to erect or maintain places for human occupancy or for other uses not specifically granted herein. [Ord. 772 § 17.36.010, 1986. Code 1987 § 17.36.010].
