Document Type: Journal Paper

Abstract:

Adequate statutory authority for city, county and regional planning is lacking in many areas. Such authority must be provided if communities are to regulate the use of flood plains in a manner that will limit and tend to reduce the damage from floods. This problem concerns all levels of government.
