FEMA FLOOD MAP UPDATES - 2017

posted Apr 28, 2017, 12:21 PM by Colette Mathieson

The FEMA Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has issued preliminary Flood insurance Rate Maps (FIRM) for Cumberland
County, Including the Town of Scarborough.  The new Flood Hazard maps can be viewed by clicking here, or in the Planning and Codes Department at Town Hall.  Every property owner should view the maps to see if any changes have occurred that would affect their property.  Many properties that are not shown to be in  a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) on the current effective FIRMs, may now be shown in SFHA on the preliminary FIRMs due to FEMA's remapping effort.  This will have an impact on any future development on those properties, and may in some cases require those property owners to carry flood insurance.  Additional information will be posted to the Town's website soon.

A friendly reminder- carts may be set out for collection the evening or day before, but must be set out by 7:00 A.M. the
morning of collection, and should be removed from the Town's right of way the day of collection.

There are a number of factors that may effect collection times on a route, weather, mechanical breakdown or a different route driver may change the time your recycling and trash are collected on your scheduled day.  Carts need to be at the curbside no later than 7:00 A.M. on the scheduled collection day.  We appreciate your help.
