Public Notices & Hearings

Public Notices

North Carolina General Statues require municipalities to keep the public informed and notified of most items of public business conducted by the City Council. In most cases, the law requires notice to be published in a newspaper of general circulation. Typically, notices are placed under the "Legal Notices" heading. We also make these notices to the public available here.

The City of Hendersonville Development Assistance Department, in accordance with National Flood Insurance Program regulation 65.7(b)(1), hereby gives notice of the City’s intent to revise the flood hazard information, generally located between 100 feet to 6,900 feet upstream of White Street (SR 1170). The flood hazard revisions are being proposed as part of a Letter of Map Revision (LOMR) Case No. 17-04-0499R for a proposed project along Mud Creek.

Halvorsen Development Corporation is proposing a redevelopment for a new retail grocery building. The LOMR will, in part, revise the following flood hazards along Mud Creek.

1. The floodway will be revised from approximately 100 feet upstream of White Street to approximately 1,000 feet upstream of White Street along Mud Creek. The floodway revision is for the removal of the redevelopment area from the floodway and does not affect the overall width of the floodway or floodway boundaries outside of the proposed redevelopment area.

2. Base Flood Elevations (BFEs) show a minor increase of 0.01’ along Mud Creek when compared to the effective model in an area approximately 6,050 feet upstream of the White Street bridge, however, a comparison to existing conditions do not reflect an actual increase in flood elevations.

3. The Special Flood Hazard Area will decrease along Mud Creek.

Maps and detailed analysis of the revision can be reviewed at the Development Assistance Department located at 100 N. King Street, Hendersonville, NC. Interested persons may call the Floodplain Administrator at 828-697-3010 for additional information from September 30, 2018 to October 31, 2018.
