Public Meeting Scheduled For Alexander County Residents To Discuss Flood Risks

Alexander County officials will host a Public Open House to give citizens an opportunity to discuss flood hazard and risk data. That meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 13, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., at the Alexander County Administration Building at 621 Liledoun Road in Taylorsville.

Residents and business leaders in Unincorporated Alexander County will be able to review and discuss the latest update to their flood hazard and flood risk data. This public open house meeting will provide an opportunity for residents and other stakeholders to see the results of the revised studies and new flood hazard areas, ask questions about the revised studies and the National Flood Insurance Program, and understand the requirements for submitting appeals or comments to the revised studies.

County and municipal employees will be on hand to help residents locate their properties from the flood hazard data and determine their level of flood risk. Representatives from the North Carolina Floodplain Mapping Program will be available to answer questions about the hazard data update process, flood insurance coverage and floodplain management.

Residents also can access the flood hazard data online at http://fris.nc.gov/fris/.
