NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
OCONTO COUNTY FLOODPLAIN ORDINANCE

COUNTY OF OCONTO

Public notice is given to all persons in the County of Oconto that a public hearing will be held on October 26, 2016, at 2 p.m. at the Mountain Community Center, 13412 State Hwy 32/64 to solicit comments on proposed ordinance and map revisions to Chapter 21 Oconto County Floodplain Ordinance of the Oconto County Code of Ordinances that are required by state and federal law. These revisions govern development in mapped floodplain areas. The proposed ordinance and map revisions are on file in the office of the Oconto County Clerk.

The proposed text amendments are intended to protect life, health and property in the floodplain areas and will govern uses permitted in the mapped floodplains.  Activities such as dredging, filling, excavating and construction of buildings are generally allowed, but may be restricted according to which flood zone the property is in.  The Planning & Zoning Committee will also solicit comments on a proposed map revision to the Hydraulic Dam Failure Floodplain Map and Profile for Reservoir Pond Dam for properties located downstream of Reservoir Pond Dam along McCaslin Brook within the jurisdiction of Oconto County.  A copy of the proposed ordinance, maps and profiles will be on file and open for public inspection in the office of the Oconto County Clerk for a period of two weeks prior to the public hearing.

All persons interested are invited to attend this hearing and be heard.  Written comments may be submitted to Oconto County Planning & Zoning Committee, Ron Korzeniewski, Chairman, 301 Washington Street,            Oconto, WI 54153
