New preliminary flood maps have been released for the areas around Kachina Village and Mountainaire area which replace older, outdated flood maps. As a result, flood risks have changed; some property owners will see that their flood risk has increased or decreased, while others will see no change.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Coconino County Flood Control District will not be holding the traditional Flood Risk Open House. This would have allowed residents and business owners to visit different stations in person at the Open House to learn about how their flood risk might have changed; possible impacts on flood insurance requirements and costs; what they could do if they disagreed with the preliminary maps and meet one-on-one with a mapping or insurance specialist, or local or FEMA representative.
Wanting to still inform affected property owners, the District has created two opportunities to hear and learn about this mapping project. First, a live virtual Flood Risk Open House meeting will be held discuss the project. Details of the meeting are provided on this page and a recording of that meeting will be placed here as well.
Second, the District has created this series of webpages as an online version of a Flood Risk Open House so property owners can still “visit” each station to learn more about the project.
Below are different “stations” for you to visit. The first station we recommend to visit is the Identify Your Property’s Flood Risk. Just click on this or any other image for station information.
