Doylestown Borough is asking residents to check new proposed flood maps for potential impacts on their property. In the event residents feel the data is incorrect, they have until Nov. 23 to appeal.
According to the Borough, the Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has recently proposed flood map modifications. “If you live in an area that is a Special Flood Hazard Area this may effect your insurance rates,” according to information from the borough.
Borough officials are advising residents to check the FEMA website and review the proposals. The map and more information can be found by clicking here.
Property owners who believe they will be adversely affected by an error in the proposed flood hazard determinations may appeal.
Residents should call Borough Director of Building and Zoning Kelli Scarlett at (215) 345-4140 for more information on the process.
