The City of Tuscaloosa’s floodplain management committee will hold an informal public meeting on Tuesday, Nov. 3 at 5 pm in the Council Chambers.

The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the floodplain management plan.

In a press release, The City of Tuscaloosa stated,

This goal of this meeting is to allow interested citizens, especially those subjected to flooding or living in the floodplain, to provide input on areas that are susceptible to widespread or localized flooding. Committee consultants will bring maps that will have flood prone areas identified and ask citizens to identify any issues or problem areas that have not been addressed. This input will be used in the development of the plan.

The floodplain management committee, which is made up of City of Tuscaloosa staff, local citizens and consultants, is developing a floodplain management plan that will identify existing and future flood-related hazards and their causes. The plan will also outline steps to educate residents and property owners about the hazards, flood loss reduction measures and the natural and beneficial functions of floodplains.

Committee members will be on hand to answer any questions and provide general information regarding the floodplain management plan.
