Life in the Floodplain

This Saturday, join City staff, local non-profit Green Lents, and many other community organizations at the Life in the Floodplain resource fair.

Life in the Floodplain is an educational event for families who live, work, or own property in or near Johnson Creek. The event will address the specific challenges – and benefits – of living and doing business near the 100-year floodplain.

Participating groups include the American Red Cross, National Flood Insurance, and the local Neighborhood Emergency Team.

The event will include free food, raffle prizes and activities for children, and tools to help:

  • Better understand flood insurance
  • Reduce utility bill costs
  • Home improvements that will help reduce flood insurance costs
  • Prepare for the next winter flood
  • Learn about grants available to local businesses

Check out the Bureau of Environmental Services’ website for more information and contact with questions.
