This training is offered in partnership with the Southwestern Pennsylvania Commission Water Resource Center
This course is designed to provide local officials who are responsible for administering floodplain management ordinances with additional resources to do their jobs. Some of the requirements of the NFIP are less clearly spelled out in the regulations, and the aim of this course is to present locals with guidance and tools on those areas. The course will offer a refresher of the mapping and regulatory basics of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and will focus on the day-to-day duties of the floodplain administrator, linking the relationship between floodplain management and flood insurance. Agenda topics will include mapping tools, suggestions on the establishment of administrative procedures, the incorporation of higher regulatory standards, permitting considerations pre- and post-disaster, and the challenges and benefits of ordinance enforcement.
Includes local zoning officials, contracted zoning officers, floodplain managers and building code inspection personnel and other stakeholders responsible for administering local floodplain management ordinances. We recommended that participants have already taken L273 - Managing Development through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) or at least have some familiarity with local ordinances and the basics of the NFIP, though it is not required.
