CVRPC has teamed up with the Agency of Natural Resources Regional Floodplain Managers to present this informative session.  The target audience is the local Floodplain Administrative Officer and the Design Review Board, and others interested.  In many towns, the Floodplain Administrative Officer is also the Zoning Administrator or Town Clerk. Please feel free to share this information with other interested persons in your municipality.
In responding with your participation, please provide a key question or area of need that you have in the administration of your local flood hazard regulations or your understanding of the National Flood Insurance Program.  This information will be used in developing the presentation to cater to those in attendance.  
The presentation will include a hands on exercise: Issuing a local permit.  
Some areas and topics to be presented include: 
  • Basics of the NFIP and the Federal/Sate and Local Roles
  • Maps, Determinations, Base Flood Elevations, Floodways
