Flood insurance and DFIRM map meetings

Hello Community Contacts, First – thank you to everyone who has put out the word about the upcoming flood hazard map change and the meetings.

There are still three meetings ahead:

Tuesday January 22, 7 pm, Brown Public Library, Northfield
Thursday January 31, 7 pm, Old Schoolhouse Common, Marshfield
Tuesday February 5, 6 pm Memorial Room, City Hall, Montpelier

Please encourage people to look at the flood hazard area map on the Vermont Natural Resources Atlas: tinyurl.com/vt-atlas

There is also information online at: vtfpm.blogspot.com

Please let me know if you didn’t get but would like a list of structures in or near the area of change. I also have a draft outreach letter that you can send to the actual owners at their actual postal addresses.

Please call or email me if you have any questions.

Thank you,


Ned Swanberg
