[ARCHIVED] Flood Risk Open House

Flood Risk Information Open House

The public is invited to review preliminary floodplain maps and learn about flood risk in their community.  

Representatives from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), in conjunction with the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy (EGLE) will host an online Flood Risk Information Open House on Tuesday, June 15, 2021, from 5:00 PM–7:00 PM. The event will be presented using Zoom and will provide residents an opportunity to review a recently completed preliminary Flood Insurance Study (FIS) and accompanying preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs).   

The FIS and the FIRMs provide base flood information, delineate areas subject to significant flood hazards within the county, and offer information public officials may use when permitting development in the floodplain.   

The Open House will provide information about flood risk, flood insurance, floodplain development regulations, and the floodplain mapping process. The preliminary floodplain maps will be available to review online during the Zoom conference and through FEMA websites. Once the maps become effective, they will be used by floodplain permit officials, builders and developers, lenders, realtors, insurance agents, and the general public to determine flood risk, develop mitigation measures, and encourage wise and responsible risk management decision-making. Meeting information follows:
