Nyeland Acres LOMR

Dear Property Owner,


 On August 14, 2015, the County of Ventura was successful in removing a large area of developed properties in the Nyeland Acres area from the FEMA 100-year floodplain which for this location is designated as a “Zone AO” Special Flood Hazard Area that was susceptible to flood depths of two feet.  This flooding was reduced to a “Zone X” (shaded) floodplain with the construction of the Nyeland Drain Tributary Storm Drain System.  The “Zone X” shaded floodplain is referred to as a 0.2% chance floodplain or 500-year floodplain and flood insurance is not mandatory in this zone.  On this website there are two Letter of Map Revision (LOMR) documents that FEMA has published which you can download and show to your insurance agent and lender.  We have created an exhibit to show the “Before” and “After” mapping situation to demonstrate that the Nyeland Acres area is no longer in a 100-year floodplain.


If you own property within the former “Zone AO” floodplain and have been required by your lender to maintain flood insurance for the Zone AO floodplain, you may be able to obtain a refund for one-year’s flood insurance premium.  Please discuss this opportunity and what documentation you will need with your insurance provider.


As a precaution, there is a chance for flooding and low cost flood insurance is available.  Please discuss the benefits of low cost flood insurance with your insurance provider.


If you have any questions, please contact Raymond Gutierrez,  Development & Inspection Services Manager, at (805)654-3027 or via email at Raymond.Gutierrez@ventura.org
