Updates to the FEMA National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP)
Presented by: Bill Nechamen, CFM, NYSDEC Floodplain Management Section and others.
Bill Nechamen, of the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation Floodplain Management Section will provide an overview of the 2012 changes to the NFIP which will cause most flood insurance premiums to increase; showcase the impacts these changes have on community participation and landowners; and discuss the benefits of the NFIP’s Community Rating System (CRS) (which works to reduce flood insurance premiums for enrolled communities whose efforts go beyond the minimum standards set by the NFIP). In addition there will be a short presentation on the findings and recommendations of the Kingston Waterfront Flooding Task Force. This event is specifically for Ulster County floodplain residential and commercial properties owners, municipal officials and local floodplain administrators, but other community members are welcome to attend.
This seminar is being offered in partnership with the Kingston Waterfront Flooding Task Force.
This event is free, but space is limited. Please register to be sure your seat is saved.
