County residents receive lower flood insurance rates


2013 FEMA

James City County homeowners who have flood insurance because they live in Special Flood Hazard Areas will receive an automatic 15 percent reduction on their flood insurance if issued or renewed on or after May 1, 2013. That’s because the County’s long term efforts to voluntarily improve flood plain management resulted in a Class 7 rating under the Community Rating System as part of the National Flood Insurance Program under FEMA. The rating lowers flood insurance rates for those homeowners affected.


Accepting the FEMA Achievement Award are County staff with a FEMA representative (L to R): Christy Parrish, Proffer Administrator; Tom Coghill, Director of Building Safety and Permits; Mary Radford, FEMA Region 3 Mitigation Planner and Community Rating System Coordinator; Keith Denny, Housing Project Coordinator; Kate Hale, Emergency Management Director; and Darryl Cook, Capital Projects Coordinator.


Contact Development Management at 757-253-6686 for more information on the National Flood Insurance Program.
