Council meeting to discuss flood elevations

Posted by schroeder915 on July 12, 2006

The Times-Picayune printed the story on Sunday.

The New Orleans City Council will hold a public meeting Thursday at 5:30 p.m. in the council chamber at City Hall, 1300 Perdido St., to discuss FEMA’s proposed advisory base flood elevations and what they mean to property owners citywide. …

The council heard a presentation last week on the proposed elevations and what they mean to people thinking about rebuilding their flood-damaged houses. To view that presentation, go to and click on “advisory base flood elevation.” The same information will be distributed to those attending Thursday’s meeting.

The council’s consultants also have other information available at

Citizens unable to attend Thursday’s meeting will be able to watch it live on Cox Cable Channel 6 in Orleans Parish. The meeting also will be rebroadcast during the following week.

For more information, call (504) 588-9068.
