Upcoming FEMA Local Assistance Meeting in Del Mar – May 15, 2019 at 5:00 p.m.
On Wednesday, May 15, 2019, at 5:00 p.m. the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will be holding a local assistance meeting in Del Mar’s Town Hall. The purpose is to inform the community that a new Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) will be applicable to properties in Del Mar. The FIRM map applies to areas that are subject to flooding by the one percent annual chance flood event and identifies the corresponding base flood elevations, flood zones, and floodplain/floodway boundaries. FEMA’s intent is to explain the applicability of the new FIRM map and answer community questions about the associated flood insurance, mapping, “letter of map change” process, and FEMA’s regulatory requirements (Title 44, Code of Federal Regulations). FEMA anticipates the new FIRM map will be effective in November 2019. For those unable to attend, an audio recording of the meeting will be made available following the meeting.
