Floodplain Management

Floodplain Administration

The City of Boerne Development Services department works to reduce flood losses by implementing floodplain designations and restrictions outlined in the Floodplain Management Ordinance. The purpose of this ordinance is to promote the public health, safety, and general welfare, and to minimize public and private losses due to floodplain conditions in special flood hazard areas and local floodplains.

Contact Jeff Carrol, Development Services Director and City Floodplain Administrator, with questions regarding development or construction activities within a designated floodplain. Email Jeff at [email protected] or call (830) 248-1618.
