Lake Erie Consultation Coordination Officer and Open House Meetings

FEMA invites Lake Erie Shoreline public officials, property owners, realtors, lenders, and insurance agents to learn more about flood risk and hazard mitigation within their community at upcoming CCO and Open House meetings. The CCO meetings are hosted to provide county officials with an opportunity to review a recently completed preliminary Flood Insurance Study (FIS) and its accompanying preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs). The FIS and the FIRMs provide base flood (also known as the one percent annual chance event) information, designate areas that are subject to significant flood hazards within the county, and offer information that public officials may use when permitting development in the floodplain. During the CCO meetings, any changes in flood risk will be explained and participants will have an opportunity to provide feedback on the FIRMs and FIS report.

Following the CCO meetings, Open House meetings are hosted for the public to meet with representatives from various local, state, and federal agencies who will provide the most current information about flood risk, flood insurance, floodplain development regulations, and the process for floodplain mapping within their county. The newly prepared preliminary FIRMs will be on display. Digital files of the Preliminary FIRMs and FIS report are also available at www.fema.gov/preliminaryfloodhazarddata.
