Dear Property Owner:
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), cities and towns, and the County of Marin, will be hosting informational meetings on the FEMA San Francisco Bay Coastal Study at the dates and times shown above. The same information will be presented by FEMA at each meeting. You have received this notice from the County of Marin because you are currently within a Special Flood Hazard Area and/or your parcel may be affected by this study.
The FEMA coastal study to re-examine flood risk along the San Francisco Bay shoreline is scheduled to be completed shortly. This study will result in revised Flood Insurance Risk Maps, which may include a change in flood risk classification for some property owners or add properties to a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA). Following additional public notice, the final revised maps based on the study will be issued for formal review and comment in January 2014.
What will happen at the meeting?
FEMA will summarize the study and revised Flood Insurance Risk Maps. A schedule of activities and milestones will be reviewed. A flood insurance representative will discuss the changes to the National Flood Insurance Program. Draft maps will be available for viewing showing the proposed new limit of SFHA. There will be a question and answer period for general questions followed by a break out session where local officials can answer more specific questions.
