City of Long Beach Residents,

The City is developing a Floodplain Management Plan (FMP) for the City of Long Beach.  This plan will allow us to identify and reduce the City's vulnerability to floods and allow us to implement actions to reduce the risk of floods to our residents and businesses. An FMP is a step towards addressing flooding, its effects on businesses and population, and ways to reduce future damages due to flood events.

An FMP is a living document that can be used to reduce the City's vulnerability to flooding. An FMP can form the foundation for a community's long-term strategy to reduce losses and break the cycle of disaster damage, reconstruction, and repeated damage. It can create a framework for risk-based decision making to reduce damages to lives, property, and the economy from future disasters.

This survey aims to gather feedback from local citizens about flooding in the City of Long Beach and to gather information about areas vulnerable to floods. The information you provide will help us coordinate activities to reduce risk of future injury or property damage for you and others.

This survey consists of 36 questions and will take less than 15 minutes to complete.

Thank you for your time in this effort!
