The Flood-Prone Property Selection Maps

In response to the interest generated by news of FEMA funds released for additional buyouts of flood-prone homes, here are maps of the properties considered by the Stormwater Task Force. Properties labeled 1.0 or higher are considered to have favorable benefit-cost ratios. The first four properties bought and demolished were 814 W. Taylor and 829, 901, and 909 Colby Court.




In a previous post, Task Force and related meeting minutes were discussed, including the discovery that one of four homes approved in February for buy-out by the city belonged to the family of a city employee.

Other documents pertaining to methodology and “work product” have been requested in order to determine the exact methodology (review or analysis, regular or simplified analysis, specific data inputs, etc.) that were used.
