Vermont Floodplain Management publication

There is a new publication available titled “Preparing for the Next Flood; Vermont Floodplain Management.” It was developed with the assistance of the Vermont Law School’s Land Use Institute, and includes information on roles and responsibilities in preventing flood damage, state and local roles in floodplain management, information on what a flood plain map is and is not, protecting property and what is a taking, and why meeting the minimum flood plain standards may not be enough. These booklets are available at CVRPC’s office and staff will bring them to meetings to deliver. If you are in Montpelier, please stop by.
