The Two Rivers-Ottauquechee Regional Commission and the Department of Environmental Conservation would like to invite you to an informational meeting on what the new FEMA Flood Insurance Rate Maps will mean for your town, your zoning, and planning processes. Come to the meeting to learn about the FEMA flood maps rollout and how your town can best prepare for the new maps.
This meeting will provide an opportunity to ask questions and learn more about what actions your town may need to take prior to the rollout of the new maps. Members of town Selectboards and Planning Commissions are encouraged to attend.
The informational meeting will be held online on Wednesday February 22 at 6:30 pm.
If you are interested in learning more about how this ongoing process will impact your town, visit floodtraining.vermont.gov. This resource provides a step-by-step guide for town officials and links to important resources for understanding this process.
