City of Norfolk in Good Standing with FEMA National Flood Insurance Program

From Carlton Ray Ransom, Senior Neighborhood Development Specialist:

“On Friday February 17, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) listed in the Federal Register incorrectly that the issuance of flood insurance in the City of Norfolk was prohibited as of 2/17/17.

The city notified FEMA immediately about the incorrect listing in their Federal Register.  As a result, FEMA issued an official letter dated February 18, 2017 affirming that the City of Norfolk is in Good Standing with National Flood Insurance Program. This letter also clarifies that new flood insurance policies can be issued within the City.”

Every community has needs.  It may be better signage, lighting, trash removal, road repair, flooding mitigation (you betcha!).  The EOV Civic League invites you to post your or your community needs.  We hope others comment and agree or disagree.  The Board will be reading and discussing these.

However, we insist that posts are courteous and respectful.  Any post that diminishes another member will be removed and the writer warned.  Second event and you will be banned.
