Floodplain Regulations Affecting Shorewood
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) oversees the Federal Floodplain Regulations across the nation. They have recently updated the flood insurance rate maps (FIRMS) for Shorewood as well as completed the Hennepin County Flood Insurance Study. Both of these will become effective on November 4, 2016. As a result, the City of Shorewood is required to update our floodplain regulations consistent with the federal regulations in order to continue participation in the flood insurance program.
