Time: 6:00 PM

Anne Arundel County to Host Open House for Citizens to Review New FEMA Coastal Flood Maps, Learn about Flood Risk September 9 event will take place at South River High School Annapolis, Maryland (August 27, 2014) — On Tuesday, September 9, Anne Arundel County’s Department of Planning and Zoning will host an open house in conjunction with the City of Annapolis to educate citizens on their flood risk following the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) recent release of updated Coastal Flood Maps. Known as Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs), these maps indicate flood-prone coastal areas in Anne Arundel County, and are used by insurance companies to determine flood insurance rates for buildings and contents. County residents and property owners are encouraged to learn more about their flood risk and the updates illustrated on the preliminary maps. Using interactive flood maps, representatives from the state and county, as well as FEMA and their mapping partners, will be available to answer flood risk and insurance questions, and explain the maps. The preliminary FIRMs and the associated Flood Insurance Study (FIS) that will be shared provide the basis for flood risk education and floodplain management measures. Anne Arundel County is required to adopt updated maps to continue participating in the National Flood Insurance Program, which makes flood insurance available to the community. As a result of these map updates, some buildings in the county may, for the first time, be included in a high-risk flood zone, known as the Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA). This may result in mandatory purchase of flood insurance for those property owners who are affected. FEMA staff will be at the Open House and will be available to talk to property owners about these updates and what they mean for them. The county’s Open House will be held at South River High School in the cafeteria from 6-8 p.m. Parking is available onsite. For more information about the event, contact Hope Stewart, Community and Constituent Services Director, by calling 410-222-1527. To learn more about floodplain changes, go to www.floodsmart.gov or www.ready.gov, or to find links to the interactive mapping website, visit www.R3Coastal.com.

Time: 8:00 PM

Downeast troubadour to perform in Galesville on September 30 Gordon Bok, the legendary maritime folklorist and singer/songwriter from Maine, will perform his repertoire of seafaring ballads at the Galesville Memorial Hall on Tuesday, September 30, from 8 to 10 p.m. Admission is . Wine, beer and soft drinks will be available for sale. Proceeds benefit the efforts of the West/Rhode Riverkeeper to protect the waterways. “We’re proud to present Gordon to Annapolis and Southern Anne Arundel County,” said Riverkeeper Jeff Holland. “We have a strong tie to our maritime traditions on these rivers, and Gordon is one songwriter who really knows his boats.” Bok’s repertoire consists of a rich trove of ballads of Maine and the Maritimes, songs and dances of the Americas and abroad, stories of boats and sailors, contemporary songs and instrumentals. He has recorded more than thirty albums, solo and with other musicians, and performs at folk clubs, concert halls and festivals throughout the U.S., Canada, Great Britain and Scandinavia. He has appeared in concert with the Paul Winter Consort and has been Garrison Kiellor’s guest on “A Prairie Home Companion.” In the words of one critic, “If the sea had a voice with which to sing, it would be the voice of Gordon Bok.” The Galesville Memorial Hall is located at 952 Galesville Road (Main St) in Galesville MD, 20765. Galesville is only 13 miles from Annapolis City Dock, and boasts waterfront restaurants like Pirate’s Cove and Thursday’s for dinner before the concert or refreshments after.
