FEMA has issued new preliminary flood maps affecting Sarasota County property owners
#SRQCounty will be hosting public meetings to discuss the new flood maps FEMA Federal Emergency Management Agency has issued, affecting Sarasota County property owners.
New flood insurance rate maps, or FIRMs, could impact your insurance requirements and premiums. Flood risk changes over time due to construction, growth, environmental impacts, floodplains widening or shifting and changes to local watersheds.
Attend one of the upcoming open houses where local officials will answer questions about the proposed changes:
📌 4-7 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 28
Francis T. Bourne Jacaranda Library, 4143 Woodmere Park Blvd., Venice.
📌 5-6 p.m., Wednesday, March 13
Held virtually over ZOOM.us (ID 832 9202 7798).
