Public Questionnaire

Baldwin County is beginning the process to update the existing Flood Hazard Management Plan to better protect the people and property of the unincorporated areas of Baldwin County from the effects of flood hazard events. The plan will be updated pursuant to the requirements of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) Community Rating System (CRS). Participation in CRS provides flood insurance premium rate reductions to policyholders in Baldwin County in recognition of the fact that the County implements activities that exceed the minimum NFIP requirements and is working towards the three goals of the CRS:
  • Reduce and avoid flood damage to insurable property;
  • Strengthen and support the insurance aspects of the NFIP; and
  • Foster comprehensive floodplain management.
It is important for citizens to become involved in flood hazard management planning in their community.  The Baldwin County Flood Hazard Planning Committee requests your participation in this short 10-question survey.  The Committee would like your input on past flood events and the types of flood hazards that are your priority concern.    

Thank you for your participation!
