City: Homeowners to save $2 Million with removal of flood plains

The Planning and Inspections Department, along with El Paso Water ,will be hosting a community meeting to inform homeowners in District 3 Pico Norte Area of the flood zone changes in their neighborhood.

Via news release city officials shared, “Pico Norte Area residents will save approximately $2 million dollars due to the City working closely with Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to remove homes from the flood zone map and the Public Service Board (PSB) for making improvements.”

“The flood zone removals were possible due to the excellent working relationship between the City, FEMA, and the PSB,” said City Manager Tommy Gonzalez.

“El Paso homeowners in those districts will benefit by not being required to have flood insurance,” Gonzalez added.

The community meeting will be held Tuesday, October 8, at 6pm at the El Paso Community College Administration Services Center Auditorium located at 9050 Viscount.

City officials say that homeowners will benefit by:

  • Lowered insurance rates or not having to pay flood insurance
  • Increased property values
  • More marketable resales
  • Better qualification for loans
