Background and Discussion:
Purchase and demolition of a Severe Repetitive Loss property with FMA2020 grant funds requiring no local match.

Expected Impact:
Purchase and demolition of a Severe Repetitive Loss property will remove the structure (a motel) from the floodplain, preventing future flood insurance claims, and allow the floodplain to function in a more natural manner.

Alternative Options:
Structures remain in the floodplain and will be susceptible to frequent and severe flooding, leading to additional claims being paid through the federally subsidized National Flood Insurance Program.

Alignment with Goal(s):
_ Justice and Safety
_ Economic Opportunity
_ Housing
_ Public Health
_ Transportation
X Flooding
_ Environment
_ Governance and Customer Service
