The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has canceled a series of informational meetings in Marin County to inform citizens in coastal communities about the FEMA-led San Francisco Bay Coastal Study. Marin residents who live within a Special Flood Hazard Area along the bay shoreline might be affected by the study.
Through its Flood Hazard Mapping Program, FEMA identifies flood hazards, assesses flood risks, and partners with states and communities to provide accurate flood hazard and risk data to guide them to mitigation actions. Flood Hazard Mapping is an important part of the National Flood Insurance Program, as it is the basis of the NFIP regulations and flood insurance requirements.
City staff will post new meeting times, dates and locations when this information is available.
