Mitigation Framework: General

Times have changed...

I know the reason a lot of "historic" town were located on rivers was because of commerce. However, times have changed with the plans, trains and automobiles. I'd love to see towns located on the rivers to relocate out of the flood plain. Keep the old historic downtown next to the river, but convert those buildings from businesses that the town depends on for tax revenue to something else. Sure this won't work for large cities, but its a start for small towns. I say, either move the main economic lifeblood of your town out of the flood plain, or risk the loss of your economic base and become a ghost town.
