On July 7, 2017 FEMA Region V notified the City of Roseau that the Letter of Map Revision (LOMR) floodplain maps developed after the completion of the East Diversion Flood Control Project were approved to go effective on July 31, 2017. These new floodplain maps remove nearly 100% of the properties within the city limits from the 100-year regulatory floodplain. These new maps also relieve most property owners from the requirement to carry mandatory flood insurance. The City of Roseau has posted to the front page of the city website at www.city.roseau.mn.us the properties that have been removed from the 100-year floodplain, and the process by which these property owner can cancel existing flood insurance policies if they so choose. Any property owners effected by the LOMR changes who desire to cancel their flood insurance policy are encouraged to start this process as soon as possible to expedite the cancellation process. Questions about the LOMR maps and flood cancellation process can be directed to Todd Peterson at 218-463-5003.
