Marblehead to vote on new flood map

At Town Meeting on May 5, Marblehead voters will be asked to approve new flood maps.

Becky Curran, Town Planner, has put together this FAQ about the proposal. Note that this action is to approve the maps. The FAQ clearly explains the separate provisions, which affect flood insurance, in  the new Act passed recently to overhaul Biggert-Waters.
