5. FLOOD INSURANCE RATE MAP- Brent Hadfield
In May 2006 the City initiated work to prepare a Letter of Map Revision (LOMR) to the Federal
Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to request removal of the 100 year flood plain
designations (Zone A) on the Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) for drainage routes on 300 East
1150 North. City staff was assisted by Hansen, Allen & Luce engineering. Subsequent hydrology
and hydraulic studies justifiy removal of the 100 year flood plain designation on 300 East only.
The southeast and 800 North drainage 100 year flood plain designation could not be justified for
removal and will therefore remain in place. The City submitted a LOMR to remove the 100 year
flood plain (Zone A) designation along 300
East, from 1150 North to the
plain designation on 300 East was a carry over from the 1978 study that identified a tributary at
the top of 300 East near approximately 1150 North. Subsequent housing development and the
construction of the
them from spilling onto 300 East. An exhaustive process was pursued, as dictated by FEMA, to
address the LOMR. On December 20, 2007 FEMA approved the LOMR. This basically affects
everyone on 300 east down to about 500 south. This removes the 100 year flood plain designation
on the map, not the reality of actual flooding. Flood insurance is usually tied in with a home
bills or possibly a public news release in the local newspaper to let citizens know of the change.
