Public meetings for preliminary updated floodplain maps for Brookhaven and 10 Mile Flat Creeks announced

Residents are invited to discuss proposed flood hazard information and modifications to the floodplain maps for 10 Mile Flat Creek and Brookhaven Creek at public meetings on August 22 and September 4. The meetings will be held at 6 p.m. in City Council Chambers, 201 W. Gray St.
Accurate, up-to-date floodplain maps are critical tools in the City of Norman’s ability to manage floodplains, save lives and reduce flood damage to public and personal property.  The process of updating the floodplain maps for the Brookhaven and 10 Mile Flat Creek watersheds began in 2014 during a Risk Map Discovery public meeting with community officials from Norman and surrounding areas.  
Preliminary copies of the Flood Insurance Rate Map and Flood Insurance Study report generated as a result of this process are available on FEMA’s website: www.fema.gov/preliminaryfloodhazarddata.  Paper copies are also available for review at City Hall, Public Works Department, 201 West Gray Street, Building A. 
FEMA is inviting the public to appeal or comment on the proposed modifications to the floodplain maps for 10 Mile Flat Creek and Brookhaven Creek. Residents may submit comments and appeals through October 7, 2019. Appeals must include technical information, such as hydraulic or hydrologic data, to support any claims that the modeling or data used to create the maps is technically or scientifically incorrect.  After the appeal period has ended and all appeals and comments have been addressed, FEMA will initiate final preparation of the new maps.
The City of Norman will conduct two public meetings on the updated floodplain maps on:
Dates:                   Thursday, August 22, 2019 at 6:00 p.m.
