RE: Flood Insurance Promotion Meeting

 

Dear Cape May Resident:

 

The City of Cape May is expanding its public outreach to residents in and adjacent to the Flood Hazard Area.  Currently residents receive a 25% discount on flood insurance rates since our community is Class 5 in the Community Rating System (CRS).  This rating is based on the various activities that the Community does.  Buildings located in the Flood Hazard Area are required to have Flood Insurance.  Buildings being insured help our town respond quicker after a flooding event.  This year we want to invite you to have experts review your elevation certificate and flood insurance policy to see if you are being rated correctly.

 

We will hold a meeting at Cape May Convention Hall on October 12, 2022 at 5:30pm.  Virtual meeting will be available on capemaycity.com website.  Meeting information is provided on the back of this page.  The meeting is being sponsored by Flood Risk Evaluator (FRE) and local Insurance Agents.  We will have insurance agents and our floodplain manager in attendance to help review your documentation to make sure your home is being rated accurately.  There is no cost or obligation to change your insurance as part of this review.

 

Please have your elevation certificate, flood insurance declaration page and two pictures of the exterior of your home.  We hope to see you at the meeting on October 12, 2022. If you can’t make this meeting, please try to attend one of the other sponsored meetings held throughout the year.  Information may also be submitted prior to the meeting at capemay@yourfloodrisk.com

 

If you have any additional questions, please reach out to our floodplain manager, Louis Belasco at 609-884-9545.  

 

Very truly Yours,

 

Mayor Mullock

Deputy Mayor Sheehan

Councilmembers Baldwin, Meier, & Yeager
