Palm Beach County 2020 Local Mitigation Strategy Adoption
The Revised Palm Beach County Local Mitigation Strategy Plan (LMS) was adopted on December 10th, 2019, by unanimous vote by the Town Council of the Town of Palm Beach. The plan was submitted for a score and inclusion in the CRS verification process in 2019. The CRS program requires that plan be updated, at a minimum on a 5-year basis based on the date of adoption of the plan. An updated plan will be due on December 10, 2024.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) provides flood insurance rate maps. Flood maps are intended to incorporate the latest and most accurate information into the maps so that they better reflect the risk that communities face. Flood maps show the extent to which areas are at risk for flooding, and are used to help determine flood insurance and building requirements.
