Meridian’s floodplain administration program is evolving in order to provide more benefits to residents.

Meridian has achieved a Class 8 rating as members of the Community Rating System, a National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) that rewards communities that go above and beyond the minimum program requirements by giving residents discounts on flood insurance premiums. The program includes activities in Public Information, Mapping, Flood Damage Reduction, and Flood Preparedness.

Floodplain Development Permit Requirements

Participation in the National Flood Insurance Program requires that local jurisdictions issue permits for all “development” in flood prone areas. This ensures that development is regulated so property damage is limited and so property owners do not adversely affect other property owners by their actions.
