Selinsgrove Borough Council is working with SEDA-Council of Governments (SEDA-COG) to identify the flood impacts that many, if not all of you, have experienced firsthand. SEDA-COG has received Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) funding to undertake a flood resiliency initiative and Council has agreed to pilot the flood resiliency program in Selinsgrove.
A public meeting will be held on Monday, December 12, 2016, 6:30 PM, at the Selinsgrove Borough Building. It is the intent of the Borough of Selinsgrove to work with SEDA-COG to identify the flood impacts that have been experienced by both residents and business owners of the Borough.
This public meeting is being held to allow citizens and business owners an opportunity to learn more about the project and the increasing costs of flood insurance, as well as provide a forum for citizen feedback and discussion. Public testimonials and support are critical for this project to be successful.
The public meeting will be facilitated by staff from SEDA-Council of Governments. Items of discussion include:
· Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012
· Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act of 2014
· Preliminary Survey Results
· Borough of Selinsgrove Impacts
· Working Groups Discussion and Invitation
· Flood Impact Task Force Discussion
· Mitigation and Resiliency Initiatives Discussion
To learn more about the ARC Flood Resiliency project and, more importantly, how this project may affect you directly, you are encouraged to attend this public meeting.
