BERKELEY – Homeowners that reside near the water are invited to Berkeley Township’s Community Outreach program on March 28.

“I would like to invite homeowners who have flood insurance to attend the informational seminar, so they can learn how they can better protect their home from a flood disaster, and potentially save money off of their flood insurance,” Mayor Carmen Amato said.

This free program will be held on March 28, 6-8 p.m., at town hall, 627 Pinewald Keswick Road in Bayville.

Community members can take this opportunity to review their property and insurance information with a Licensed Floodplain Management Professional. Talk with professionals about getting a cost-saving analysis, explore flood insurance options and the possibility of lowering insurance premiums, and ensure that the construction of your new home, or lifting of an existing home, will comply with FEMA regulations.


“This program will enable residents to sit one-on-one with a Certified Floodplain Manger in order to get flood insurance options on the spot. We encourage maritime residents to join us at this important Community Outreach Program,” Amato said.

If you plan on attending, make sure to bring a copy of your Elevation Certificate and Flood Insurance Policy.
