FEMA Updates Flood Hazard Mapping for MAGIC communities in the Concord River Watershed

 
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Concord River Watershed Workshop scheduled for Thursday, September 12, 2013 is delayed and will begin at 5:00 p.m. (not at 4:00 p.m. as previously advertised). The Workshop will be held at the Alcott Elementary School that is located at 93 Laurel Street in Concord MA.

The format for the workshop is as follows: Several representatives from FEMA, along with MEMA staff Rich Zingarelli and Colleen Bailey, will be on hand in the school cafeteria beginning at 5:00 p.m. to meet with property owners one-on-one to discuss the map changes and how it affects their property. At 5:30 p.m., 7:00 and 7:30 p.m., small group sessions will be offered to discuss “flood insurance 101” – (the basics of the federal flood insurance program) – these will be announced for anyone who may have simple questions about flood insurance. A formal presentation about the map changes, the letter of map amendment process and the full federal flood insurance program will be held in the school’s auditorium at 6:00 p.m. FEMA representatives will continue to meet one-on-one with residents in the cafeteria as needed during and after the formal presentation. FEMA representatives will have all of the Middlesex County flood maps loaded on their computers. Communities have been invited to bring their paper maps with them for viewing in the Cafeteria.

Residents from twelve of the thirteen MAGIC communities (including Acton, Bedford, Bolton, Boxborough, Carlisle, Concord, Hudson, Lincoln, Littleton, Maynard, Stow, and Sudbury) have been invited to attend this informational workshop.
