City to host open house on flood plain revisions

From Local Sources

JASPER — The city will be revising flood hazard information for the area between St. Charles Street and Rolling Ridge Road, specifically the area near Jasper Drain.

With the revision, the floodway will be aligned with the stream, and the base flood elevations will decrease.

The city will host an open house on the changes from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 12 in the Pfaffenweiler Room at City Hall, 610 Main St. The open house is for questions only; there will be no formal presentation. For those who can’t make the open house, the floodplain map revisions may also be viewed online.

Director of Community Development and Planning Darla Blazey can be reached at 812-482-4255.
