FEMA Floodplain Meeting Tonight

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is in the process of updating the Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) for areas of Utah County. In conjunction with this effort FEMA developed a revised floodplain for Springville City. The revised maps may impact your property. If this map is adopted by FEMA, you may be required to purchase flood insurance.

A Public Open House will be held on April 23, 2014 from 5 – 7 PM with a short presentation at 6 PM at the High Chaparral building, 475 Main Street, Spanish Fork, Utah. During this meeting the revised FEMA maps will be discussed and those in attendance will have an opportunity to ask questions about the impacts the new maps will have on their property.

A web viewer has been created to show the preliminary data and changes since the last FIRM data map was published in the early1980’s. Please visit the web viewer:http://maps.springville.org/floodmap.

We hope that you are able to attend the meeting where these maps and your options as an affected property owner will be described in more detail. Please visit www.floodsmart.gov for further National Flood Insurance information, or contact the FEMA map information eXchange at 877 336-2627 (877 FEMA MAP).
