We have a situation where our local NRD performed a study and found drastic differences in the FP and FW along our creek. We've had development pressure within some of these areas that will be future FP and FW. I am trying to find as much information to support a temporary moratorium as possible. My understanding is that a moratorium may be legal if it serves a legitimate interest. This would obviously protect people and the environment until the draft DFIRMs are adopted as the official DFIRMs. We're looking at 1 year until the maps are formally adopted. I know we can ask the CC to adopt the draft maps, but I want to know our moratorium options. So far, I am thinking about the Homebuilders of the Greater E. Bay V Livermore as a potentially related case.
Thoughts, cases, information? Thanks!
ETA: we have a grading permit request for a property. It's not zoned or platted. We could limit use of the property by through zoning or platting due to the current changes in progress, however they are asking now for a grading permit.
Please fully spellout all acronyms. Some (ie most) will not know what they stand for.
