The City of Valdez is working to revise our community’s zoning code (Title 17). This project will align the City’s zoning and land use standards with the vision, goals and land use map in the recently adopted Comprehensive Plan (“Plan Valdez”).
Valdez is surrounded by numerous water bodies including glacier fed streams, Port Valdez, lakes and others. The City is committed to evaluating flood hazards and protecting the community. Various flood control projects have been completed or are in development.
