Reminder: Boulder County Floodplain Remapping Project public meeting Jan. 25

Boulder County, Colo. - Boulder County Transportation and the State of
Colorado are inviting residents along lower Fourmile Canyon Creek (below Anne U. White
trailhead, Pinto Dr. down to city limits) located within unincorporated
Boulder County and other interested parties to attend the open
house map review meeting scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 25. Attendees can review
and provide input on draft floodplain maps from the Colorado Hazard
Mapping Program (CHAMP) and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).
Boulder County wants the draft maps to accurately
reflect local flood risk, which is why residents living along area creeks and
rivers are encouraged to get involved and provide input at this early stage. Staff
will be available to answer questions and take comments.

What: Public Map Review Open House for Lower Fourmile Canyon

When: Thursday, Jan. 25, 4 to 7 p.m.*

Public comment and input on the draft
floodplain maps will be taken at this meeting and can also be provided via an
interactive web map before or after the meeting. To access the web map,
visit and
select "Review Draft Floodplain Maps." All comments related to
these draft maps must be received no later than 11:59 p.m. on Sunday,
Feb. 4
to be incorporated into the county’s submission to CHAMP for
their consideration during their next round of revisions, floodplain modeling,
and mapping.

Additional stream reaches will be available
for review at a later date and public meetings will be scheduled and announced
on the county website, the county calendar, in project newsletters, via the
listserv, social media (Facebook and Twitter), and through the various
