Floodplan Map Changes Could Add Thousands to Your Annual Insurance Budget

Hundreds of Treasure Valley homeowners will spend thousands more dollars each year on their Flood Insurance if the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s newest flood maps are adopted.

The proposed maps, which could be finalized by mid-2017, would put more than three-quarters of Garden City in what the agency considers the Boise River’s floodplain. New floodplain areas would include almost all of the land south of the river between Garden City’s eastern tip and 46th Street, as well as most of the neighborhood south of State Street between Bogart Lane and Glenwood Street.
