Council meeting to discuss flood elevations

The Times-Picayune printed the story on Sunday.

The New Orleans City Council will hold a public meeting Thursday at 5:30 p.m. in the council chamber at City Hall, 1300 Perdido St., to discuss FEMA's proposed advisory base flood elevations and what they mean to property owners citywide. ...

The council heard a presentation last week on the proposed elevations and what they mean to people thinking about rebuilding their flood-damaged houses. To view that presentation, go to and click on "advisory base flood elevation." The same information will be distributed to those attending Thursday's meeting.
