FEMA & NJDEP Flood Map Update Meeting

FEMA & NJDEP Flood Map Update Meeting

08/13/2014 - 10:00am

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP), along with County and local officials have been working to update your community’s Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) and Flood Insurance Study (FIS). The recently released preliminary FIRM and preliminary FIS are the main elements to this update process and have been delivered to your community for review and comment. We have already conducted a number of meetings in your area to discuss the flood risk assessment products and address local mapping concerns. To wrap up any remaining mapping issues, along with addressing local flood insurance concerns, we invite you to the Consultation Coordination Officers (CCO) meeting.

 

Wednesday, August 13th

10:00 AM – 12:00 PM

USS Juneau Memorial Center

Hudson County Emergency Operations Center

110 South Hackensack Ave

Kearny, NJ 07032

(201) 319-3871

 

This will be the last in-person community engagement meeting to discuss and comment on your preliminary FIRMs before they become effective. It is important you participate in this meeting to ensure the flood risk assessment for your community is adequately reflected and that any outstanding floodplain management and insurance issues are addressed.

 

We recommend that, in addition to your community CEO, you consider sending your floodplain administrator, emergency management coordinator, engineer, public outreach specialist, and planner. This meeting will involve representatives from FEMA, FEMA’s Mapping Partner, the State of New Jersey, our academic partners, and officials from your community. 

 

Community involvement and local knowledge are critical in ensuring the preliminary FIRMs are accurate and ready for community adoption. Conveying the risk shown on the preliminary FIRMs is also an important element of the update process, as residents must have the awareness of flood risk in their area to guide them in their development decision making process. Therefore, we ask every community to:

 

  • Review your preliminary FIRM and FIS and suggest corrections or comments as soon as possible;

 

  • Reach out to the residents affected by the changes in flood risk shown on the FIRM and inform them of the potential flood insurance implications; and  

 

  • Adopt a new or amended flood damage prevention ordinance that meets the NFIP minimum requirements or face possible suspension from the NFIP.

 

We would also appreciate you providing us with an electronic and a hard copy of your latest signed flood damage prevention ordinance for your community at the meeting, as this will help us evaluate if your flood damage prevention ordinance needs to be revised. Every effort has been made to produce an accurate study to provide your community with flood risk information to effectively implement and enforce the requirements of the NFIP. If you have any questions, please contact me at thomas.song@fema.dhs.gov or 212-680-8519.
