FEMA Mitigation Best Practices: Floodprone Structures Acquisitions Becomes Park Area   [open pdf - 88KB]

Alternate Title: Floodprone Structures Acquisitions Becomes Park Area

"Floods have devastated the City of Tulsa many times, an average of about once every 5 years. Through the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) and the Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) Program, the City has taken measures to mitigate against these costly floods. The City has also taken measures to increase public awareness and support of flood mitigation via the production of videos and publications. Through HMGP funding, the City of Tulsa acquired 17 repetitive loss structures. An additional five structures were acquired under the FMA program. These structures were among the 100 repetitive loss structures addressed in the City's Master Drainage Plan. As a result of the acquisition, all acquired homes were demolished and the land was reverted to a park area and water detention site." This and other individual FEMA Best Practices documents are also combined in 'Mitigation Best Practices: Public and Private Sector Best Practice Stories for All Activity/Project Types in All States and Territories Relating to All Hazards [August 10, 2011],' which can be accessed at the following link: [https://www.hsdl.org/?abstract&did=683132]
