What is the city’s flood plain rating?

The city recently was re-certified as a level 8 community in the Community Rating System that is part of the National Flood Insurance Program. The rating system has 10 classes, with the 1 class being the top ranked class. The 8 rating allows Lawrence residents in flood-prone areas to receive about a 10 percent reduction on flood insurance policies, according to new information compiled by the city and to the website of the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
