FEMA Flood Map Update Open House – March 26

FEMA Flood Map Update Open House – March 26

Rochelle residents are invited to attend a FEMA Flood Map Update Open House on March 26 from 3-6PM in the Conference Center at City Hall.

Preliminary copies of the Flood Rate Insurance Map and Flood Insurance Study report for Ogle and Lee Counties will be available for review and comment. This revision incorporates updated flood hazard information for Kyte River watershed and tributaries. The new detailed study information has resulted in new and modified flood base elevations, Special Flood Hazard Area boundaries, floodway boundaries, and flood insurance zone designations.

Maps are available to review before the Open House at www.illinoisfloodmaps.org. Representatives from FEMA will be on hand during the Open House for questions.
