Important Information for property owners south of Walker Street. (with the exception of those on high ground)

The Montrose City Council is holding a special meeting on Saturday, January 23rd at 9 am. You may attend in person at the Community Center, or WebEx call in information will be available on the "Agendas" page of the city website.

FEMA is in the process of changing the flood plain maps. At a meeting earlier this week, they shared their updated map and it will have a major impact in Montrose. They said 14 structures will be placed in the high risk category that previously were not considered in the flood plain.
We are still in the process of identifying the 14 impacted structures, but once that is complete, flyers will be put in mailboxes or put on front doors to make sure everyone affected hears about the special meeting.

Take a look at FEMA's updated map at the following link. Scroll down toward the bottom until you get to McCook County. Then zoom in on Montrose. You can move the center bar on the image left or right to see the current map (left) vs the updated map (right)

At the meeting, the City Council will discuss next steps to try to keep these changes from taking effect before this map becomes official.
