FEMA Announces Additional Lake Michigan WorkMap Meetings

Local officials and technical stakeholders are being invited to community meetings to review and comment on FEMA’s draft coastal flood hazard workmaps for the Lake Michigan Shoreline. FEMA’s outreach for the 2017 workmaps started in early July. Meetings have already occurred for Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin communities. The meeting schedule for Michigan and the remaining Wisconsin counties is below.

Each meeting will include a summary of the draft work maps, Q&A, and a breakout for review of community-specific data via printed and online maps. Staff members and officials representing villages, cities, and county government, regional organizations, non-governmental bodies, neighborhood associations, and harbor and shoreline protection engineers are encouraged to attend and to provide feedback within the 60-day comment period.
