At their regular meeting on November 19, 2018, the Waconia City Council adopted the City’s Floodplain Regulations. The update coincided with floodplain maps created by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). In order to remain eligible for the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), the City was required to adopt the new FEMA floodplain maps by December 21, 2018. The City used this as an opportunity to also update their floodplain regulations. The updated maps and new regulations became effective in December of 2018.
Please visit the Floodplains section of the City's website for more information, and don't hesitate to contact the Community Development Department with any questions you may have, or if someone has reached out to you about flood insurance.
