Federal Flood Hazard Regulations
About the Regulations
The federal government has required local units of government to adopt regulations that restrict activities on land designated by special flood hazard maps as being subject to 100-year flooding. These regulations are incorporated into McLean County zoning and subdivision regulations. They are fairly restrictive and allow only very limited activity without variation of the regulations.

Burden of Proof
If there is any uncertainty as to whether a property is subject to the flood regulations, the applicant must provide certified information as to the elevation of the building site in relation to the 100-year special flood hazard boundaries.

Additional Details
Check with the Building and Zoning Department at (309) 888-5160 to ascertain any potential problem with designated flood hazard areas.
