Update Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM) in Durham CA

This petition had 41 supporters

Butte County's Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM) currently show a large portion of Durham CA within Flood Zone AE.  Zone AE requires homeowners to purchase annual flood insurance based on the 1-percent annual chance of flood. Recent storms, and high water levels, over the last few years have demonstrated this AE zone may no longer adequately represent the needs of our community. In fact, in several cases this zone actually hinders growth, progress, and agriculturally opportunity. 

Hearing this concern, Butte County Public Works is actually positioned to update the FIRM zones in Durham which could potentially change our flood insurance requirement from mandatory to optional. If you are interested in seeing Butte County move forward with this project to update these maps....please show your support by signing this petition.
