Community Notification: Flood Hazard Revisions Along Cedar Creek
The City of Lee’s Summit, Missouri, Public Works Department in accordance with National Flood Insurance Program regulation 65.7(b)(1), hereby gives notice of the City of Lee’s Summit’s intent to revise the flood hazard information, generally located upstream and downstream of SW Ward Road along Cedar Creek. The flood hazard revisions are being proposed as part of Letter of Map Revision (LOMR, Case No. 22-07-0797P) for a completed construction project along Cedar Creek. The City of Lee’s Summit has constructed improvements that replaced the culverts at the stream’s crossing with SW Ward Road.
Specifically, the floodway shall be revised from a point approximately 1,000 feet downstream of SW Ward Road to a point approximately 1,500 feet upstream of SW Ward Road along Cedar Creek. As a result, the floodway widths shall narrow or remain unchanged within the area of revision. In addition, the Base Flood Elevations (1% annual chance water-surface elevations) will increase and decrease. Base Flood Elevations will increase a maximum of 0.3 feet at a point approximately 1,000 feet downstream of Ward Road. The Special Flood Hazard Area (1% annual chance floodplain) will widen and narrow along Cedar Creek within the area of revision.
Maps and a detailed analysis of the proposed flood hazard revisions can be reviewed at Lee’s Summit City Hall, Public Works Department at 220 SE Green Street, Lee’s Summit, MO 64063. If you have any questions or concerns about the proposed project or its effect on your property, you may contact Karen Quackenbush of the City of Lee’s Summit at 816-969-1800 or PublicWorks@cityofls.net from 11/14/2022 to 12/14/2022.
