VIRTUAL Open House for the Flood Insurance Rate Map Update

Jan 6, 2021 at 5:00 PM - Jan 6, 2021 at 7:00 PM

The virtual Open House will provide county residents with an opportunity to review a recently completed Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Preliminary Flood Insurance Study (FIS) and its accompanying Preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs).

Staff representatives from state and federal agencies will be available to provide the most current information about flood risk, flood insurance, floodplain development regulations, and the process for floodplain mapping within Pope County.

Once the maps become effective, they will be used as the basis for flood insurance as well as local flood protection regulations adopted under the National Flood Insurance Program. FEMA also intends that they be used to assist planning processes and outreach efforts to increase resiliency in response to flood and storm events.
