Meetings Planned on New Dare Flood Maps

The flood maps update presentation given at the Jan. 6 Dare County Board of Commissioners meeting.

Dare County Planning Board is holding two informational meetings in February about the newly released updated flood maps that will become effective June 19 for the unincorporated areas of the county.

Meetings are scheduled for 5 p.m. Monday, Feb. 10, at the Dare County Board of Commissioners Meeting Room in Manteo and at 5 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 13, at the Fessenden Center in Buxton.

Many properties have been reclassified on the updated flood maps for the county and in many instances at a lower risk flood zone, according to the county.

Planning Director Donna Creef will provide during the meeting an overview of the updated maps, discuss associated concerns and explain proposed regulations for development in unincorporated Dare County being considered.
