Revised Preliminary Draft Floodplain Maps are now available for public review and comment on FEMA's website. You may view these documents in person at the Itasca Village Hall, Community Development Department during normal business hours.
DuPage County, in cooperation with FEMA and the Illinois State Water Survey, has been working to update Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) and the Flood Insurance Study (FIS) for DuPage County, including the Village of Itasca. Preliminary maps were made available for public comment in June 2015. However, because of the extent of comments, DuPage County conducted further study and made further revisions.
The Revised Preliminary Maps and FIS can be found on FEMA’s site: http://www.fema.gov/preliminaryfloodhazarddata. Click on the preliminary flood data search tool, “preliminary flood data search tool”, then complete the drop down menu choices (Illinois, DuPage County, Get Preliminary FEMA Map Products”). The following Item ID numbers are the maps that cover Itasca and the surrounding area:
For your convenience, the Village has taken the data from the Revised Preliminary Maps and overlaid it on a Village of Itasca Map.
You may also view these documents in person at the Itasca Village Hall, Community Development Department during normal business hours (Monday – Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.).
Your review comments are an important part of the review process! Written comments may be sent to Shelly Fuller, Illinois State Water Survey, 2204 Griffith Drive, Champaign, IL 61820, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. All written comments must be received by Friday, August 25, 2017.
An Open House meeting to review these documents will be held on Thursday, July 27, 2017 from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the DuPage County Government Center, Jack T. Knuepfer Building Auditorium, 421 N. County Farm Road, Wheaton, IL 60187. Representatives from FEMA, the Illinois State Water Survey, and DuPage County will be present to answer questions about the preliminary floodplain maps, and all floodplain map panels will be on display for viewing. The Village of Itasca encourages impacted property owners attend this public meeting.
