Cranston Public To Discuss Floodplain Maps With City Planning Director

Jun 2, 2014

Cranston's City Planning Director Peter Lapolla will be holding a meeting with the public on June 11th to discuss the city's floodplain management plan. Lapolla says the officials want to know about any flood-prone areas that they may have missed. 

"What we're doing is going out to the public and saying 'I think we've identified the areas where there are flooding issues, and we want your input on whether we've properly identified all those areas. Have we missed any, and have we misrepresented or misassumed the causes of the flooding?'"

The floodplain management plan is part of a larger hazard mitigation plan that Cranston is required to update periodically. It will be held at 7 p.m. at the Cranston Senior Center on Cranston Street.
