Restrict or prohibit uses which are dangerous to health, safety or property in times of flooding or cause undue increases in flood heights or velocities.
Require that uses vulnerable to floods, including public facilities which serve such uses, be provided with flood protection at the time of initial construction.
Protect individuals from buying lands which are unsuited for intended purposes because of flood hazards.
