Land in flood plain eligible for insurance

LOVELAND - Property owners in the flood plain will keep their eligibility for federally backed insurance.

City Council recently adopted an ordinance that included minor revisions to a model law that was being promoted by state officials.

Loveland officials had expressed concern that a federal expansion of the flood plain along the Little Miami River jeopardized plans to revitalize historic downtown because it would make construction more expensive.

An ad hoc committee was formed to research options, while property owners risked being dropped from the National Flood Insurance Program if Loveland missed a May 17 deadline to pass a new ordinance.

The federal expansion was part of the Federal Emergency Management Agency's new 100-year flood plain maps for Hamilton County.

The map expansion shows worsened flood risks in some areas.
