FEMA Invites Porter County Residents To Coastal Flood Map Open House
Thursday, August 29, 2019
The open house will provide residents with an opportunity to review a recently completed preliminary Flood Insurance Study (FIS) and its accompanying preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs).
The FIS and the FIRMs provide base flood information, designate areas that are subject to significant flood hazards within the shoreline areas of the county and offer information that public officials may use when permitting development in the floodplain.
Representatives from various local, state, and federal agencies will provide the most current information about flood risk, flood insurance, floodplain development regulations, and the process for floodplain mapping within Porter County. The newly prepared preliminary floodplain maps will be on display. Once the maps become effective, they will be used as the basis for flood insurance ratings as well as local flood protection regulations adopted under the National Flood Insurance Program.
