The City of Cherry Hills Village adopted the Arapahoe County Multi-Hazard Mitigation Plan in October 2015. The Hazard Mitigation Plan is available on the City’s website at cherryhillsvillage.com/386/Floodplain-Development as well as in paper copy from Cherry Hills Village upon request. Since the adoption date Cherry Hills Village has been actively engaged in implementing the recommendations outlined in this plan.
Specifically, Cherry Hills Village continues to enforce and implement the following action items that are specific to the city’s hazard mitigation and more specifically floodplain regulations and enforcement:
Enforcement of Floodplain Regulations to limit development in floodplain areas and will continue to enforce these regulations.
Adopt and Enforce 2012 International Building Codes: Cherry Hills Village has now adopted the 2015 International Building Codes.
The city continues to reach all objectives and implementation as outlined in this plan. As the city participates in the update to the joint multi-hazard Mitigation Plan effort, which will be recommenced before the expiration of the plan in 2020, some recommendations or new projects may include the following:
Continue to adopt and enforce the most recent International Building Codes
Continue to lower the Community Rating System (CRS) Status as applicable
Identify areas of improvement to better assist vulnerable individuals such as the elderly (people over 65 years of age); children (under 5 years old); and the infirm. Cherry Hills Village has a higher percentage of elderly residents compared to other adjacent communities.
