Flood Hazard Maps and Regs

WORKSHOP on Flood Hazard Regulations and DFIRM Maps, Washington County

Just a reminder that Central Vermont Regional Planning Commission has scheduled a workshop for Wednesday, September 16, 2009 for 2 p.m. and again at 7 p.m. at 29 Main Street, Montpelier. The workshop will cover the DFIRM maps (digitized flood maps) and any implications resulting from flood zone boundary changes. Discussion will also focus on the flood hazard area regulations that need to be updated to continue to meet the requirements of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). We strongly encourage you to be sure several people from your community attend this workshop. The State’s River Management Program (Ned Swanberg, ned.swanberg@state.vt.us) is looking to review flood hazard area bylaws by March 2010; that’s not as far away as it sounds. If you have questions or want more details, please look for the flyer CVRPC will be mailing out shortly. In the meantime, you can contact Chris Walsh at CVRPC by emailing him at walsh@cvregion.com or calling 802/229-0389.
