Flood Map Open House – Tuesday, May 30, 2017

FEMA has been promising new flood maps for several years now and, in March of this year, it released preliminary maps to the Charleston County Building Department.

These maps will update the Charleston area for the first time since 2004 and will provide property owners with up-to-date flood hazard information. According to FEMA, the projected effective date of the maps, following the County’s review and comments as well as the public meetings and objection filings, is April of 2018.

Charleston County officials will hold an Open House on Tuesday, May 30, 2017 from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm at the Seabrook Island Club to provide Seabrook Island residents with an opportunity to see the preliminary flood maps, learn about their risk of flooding, and ask questions about what the new maps will mean for their property.

Residents can meet one-on-one with a variety of specialists who will be available to talk about flood insurance, engineering, building permits and more. This is a community-wide event, open to all Seabrookers.
