Middle Township will host a community outreach meeting on Wednesday, July 18 from 5-7 p.m. at the Middle Township Municipal Building, 2 S. Boyd Street, Cape May Court House. The purpose of the outreach meeting is to educate Middle Township residents on improvements that may reduce flood insurance premiums.

This event is sponsored by Flood Risk Evaluator (F.R.E.) who will go through all of the steps associated with flood insurance with residents. F.R.E. asks that attending residents bring their Elevation Certificates and Currently Flood Insurance Policy to assist them with their plan.

“Many residents have reached out to the Township for help on navigating the new regulations and standards in place. Our hope is that this meeting is able to provide some clarity to the residents and help them save some money as well,” said Middle Township Mayor Michael J. Clark.

The meeting will begin with an overview of the National Flood Insurance Program changes which includes the new laws and regulations that may effect policies, mitigation steps, and homeowner savings methods. Information will also be provided regarding FEMA grants for home elevation. Following this, residents are welcome to sit one-on-one with a Certified Floodplain Manager to review their current flood insurance policy and elevation certificate. Upon reviewing the documents, the Certified Floodplain Manager will then determine the proper mitigation steps needed to lower the residents premium.
