On Thursday, September 26, representatives from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will host a Flood Risk Open House for the Lake Michigan shoreline communities in Cook County. The Open House will give residents the chance to review preliminary versions of a recently completed Flood Insurance Study (FIS) report and its accompanying preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM).
At the Open House, representatives from various local, state, and federal agencies, including the City of Evanston, will provide the most current information about flood risk, flood insurance, floodplain development regulations, and the process used to map Cook County’s floodplains. The newly prepared maps will be on display. Once these maps become effective, they will be used as the basis for flood insurance rates and for local floodplain management ordinances adopted under the National Flood Insurance Program. Details for the Cook County meeting are as follow:
