The Village of Roselle is hosting a floodplain map informational meeting on January 22 at 6:00 p.m. at Village Hall, 31 S. Prospect St., to provide an update on the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Flood Insurance Rate Map adoption.

Some floodplain maps revised by FEMA in 2017 had a direct impact on property owners in Roselle, and efforts have been ongoing since then to appeal parts of the mapping efforts. All of the affected property owners in Roselle have already been notified of the potential impact of the updated floodplain maps.

Included in the appeals process is additional floodplain map remodeling that is currently ongoing through DuPage County. An update on the county’s efforts to further update the floodplain maps will be provided during the meeting, followed by a question and answer session.

FEMA is expected to officially adopt the new Flood Rate Insurance Maps early this year based on the maps that were originally presented in 2017. This adoption will not take into account any of the current remodeling efforts by DuPage County. Once the DuPage County map remodeling is complete, impacted properties in Roselle will be reviewed, with the goal of having them removed from FEMA’s Flood Insurance Rate Maps as appropriate.
