Substantial Damage Informational Meeting
In December, approximately 90 residents received a letter from the City of Barre indicating that their property had been deemed tentatively Substantially Damaged. The City makes these determinations because we participate in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and therefore have Flood Regulations that must be enforced in order to remain in the program. Participation in this program makes flood insurance available to City residents at reasonable costs.
We recognize that learning about this designation was difficult for many residents and we are committed to providing a setting to answer their questions as we all navigate recovery from the July 2023 flood. We invited residents who received this letter to a public meeting which was held on January 30, 2024.
