Atlanta's Floodplain Restrictions

July 27, 2018

The City of Atlanta's Floodplain Administrator is working to notify the real estate community about regulations related to land use and development within floodplains around the city. Officials want to be sure REALTORS® "are aware of restrictions" and have the proper resources so that buyers and sellers of real estate understand the legal ramifications of their actions and purchases.

More and more, floods have caused many issues for property owners. The City of Atlanta is working diligently to assure consumers have an understanding of rules and regulations surrounding property use in recognized floodplains. What better way to do that than by assuring real estate professionals have the tools to educate them.

To review resources to understand these regulations and to learn about the "do's and don'ts" of projects in or near the floodplain, click here.
