FLOODPLAIN ANNOUNCEMENTS



New Low-Cost Flood Insurance Option

As of January 1, 2011, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) National Flood Insurance Program will utilize a new flood insurance rating option to help reduce the financial burden placed on property owners whose buildings are newly mapped into a high-risk flood area.  This option is referred to as the Preferred Risk Policy (PRP). 

If you own a building that was not previously located within a high-risk flood area (such as an AE or AH zone), but now is according to the new Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) dated August 5, 2010, then you may be eligible for a PRP.  For more information, please refer to the links below.
