The City’s Community Rating System Coordinator, Ms. Whitney McNamara, recently sent the above letter to all homeowners living in flood prone areas of our City. The CRS is a national program and almost all of the cities in Hampton Roads are participants. One of the requirements of the program is civic engagement. The outreach letter contains a lot of helpful information, so please read it and its reference documents if you live in a flood prone area. Being part of the CRS program also brings along benefits for citizens in the form of reduced flood insurance premiums. The % saving is based on a points scale based on what actions the City is implementing. Virginia Beach is currently at a 15% savings rating and is continuously working towards improvement and more savings. You can click on the link below or the image above to read the entire letter.
