The Flood Review Board is a 5-7 member board with members being appointed by the Board of County Commissioners to three-year terms. The Flood Review Board was created by the enactment of flood zoning regulations in Larimer County. In recent years the Flood Review Board has considered projects near streams and rivers associated with the Little and Big Thompson Rivers, the Poudre River, the Fossil Creek drainage basin, the Boxelder/Cooper Slough, and Dry Creek. 

The Flood Review Board reviews the exact boundaries of the Floodway and Flood-Fringe zones, special permit applications, variance petitions from the Flood Plain Regulations and petitions to expand non-conforming uses and structures. Members are technically qualified in civil engineering with an emphasis in river hydrology and hydraulics, and must have knowledge of local and Federal flood plain regulations and a background in hydraulic modeling.
