FEMA Great Lakes Coastal Study & New Flood Map Information
FEMA is preparing new Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) for Ottawa and the
surrounding Counties. While Ottawa County recently adopted maps in 2015, these
proposed new maps would replace the 2015 maps. FEMA anticipates that these new
maps will be ready for adoption within the next 2-3 years (2018-2019). During this 2-3
year time frame, they will conduct public meetings and community outreach for residents
to attend and comment. The Township will do the best that we can to help filter that information to our residents.
