Public Meeting on FEMA Flood Insurance Study Revisions: Tuesday, Dec.12
by Bend Weekly News Sources

On Tuesday, December 12th, a public meeting will be held by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to present its Flood Insurance Study Revisions for incorporated Deschutes County. The meeting will take place at 6:30 p.m. at the Deschutes County Services Center building in the Barnes Room, located at 1300 NW Wall Street.

Representatives from the Oregon State Department of Land Conservation and Development, FEMA, and other local communities will be on hand to discuss the study and its affects on ongoing local development.

The Flood Insurance Study Revision was recently completed for incorporated and unincorporated Deschutes County. This revision was accomplished through a partnership between FEMA and Black & Veatch Consultants. The revision includes updated floodplain maps indicating areas that would be inundated by the base flood (100-year flood). The maps will be used by lending institutions and insurance agents in determining who must purchase flood insurance, and the cost of that insurance should it be necessary. In addition, the maps will be used by the County and local communities for floodplain management and permitting purposes.

The changes in the revision include 2004 topographic data in digital format, which was used to redelineate the floodplain boundaries in the City of Bend. Also included are countywide redelineations of floodplain boundaries from orthographic imagery published in 2005. Those directly affected by the issuance of this study are individuals owning property and/or living in the identified flood hazard areas, such as along the Deschutes River.

Public Meeting on FEMA Flood Insurance Study Revisions:

Tuesday, December 12, 2006
Time: 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Location: Deschutes County Service Center -– Barnes Room, 1300 NW Wall Street
