Virtual Flood Risk Open House for Oak Creek
Welcome to the Oak Creek Virtual Flood Risk Open House.
New preliminary flood hazard maps have been released for Oak Creek, which replaces older, outdated flood maps. As a result, some property owners will see that their flood risk has increased or decreased, while others will see no change.
Due to this pandemic, the traditional Flood Risk Open Houses will not be held. This would have allowed residents and business owners to visit different stations in person to learn about how their flood risk might have changed, possible impacts on flood insurance requirements and costs, what they could do if they disagreed with the preliminary maps, and meet one-on-one with a mapping or insurance specialist, or local or FEMA representative. Wanting to still inform affected property owners, the District has created two opportunities hear and learn about this mapping project. First, a live virtual Flood Risk Open House meeting will be held to discuss the project. Details of the meeting will be provided on this page and a recording of that meeting will be placed here as well.
Second, the District has created this series of webpages as an online version of a Flood Risk Open House so property owners could still “visit” each station to learn more about the project.
Each of the links below is a “station” for you to visit. We recommend that you start with Identify Your Flood Risk if you have not done so already.
