Public Meeting to Discuss Flood Plain Management
CLEARWATER - The City of Clearwater is updating its Flood Plain Management Plan and wants your feedback in discovering new ways to help reduce future flood damage to Clearwater neighborhoods. Join them for a public meeting and tell them what you think. The meeting will take place Wednesday, June 17, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Ross Norton Recreation and Aquatic Complex & Extreme Sports Park, 1426 S. Martin Luther King Jr. Ave., Clearwater.
One of the advantages to city residents of having a Flood Plain Management Plan is that it enables residents to get flood insurance at a reasonable rate (and - in some cases - even a discount). Due to the amount of development constructed within the floodplain, as well as an increase of stormwater runoff in our area, floodplain management has become an important component in protecting the wellbeing of Clearwater residents and property.
"This plan saves City of Clearwater residents a lot of money on flood insurance, and we value their important feedback," said Elliot Shoberg, Engineering Manager.
