Larimer County, in collaboration with the Larimer County – Flood 2013 Long Term Recovery Groups (Loveland and Estes Valley offices), is sponsoring an expanded Flood Recovery Information Open House on Saturday, March 8, 2014 from 10-2 pm at the Rocky Mountain Park Inn Conference Center, 101 South Saint Vrain Ave, Estes Park.
“The Open House is being held to connect those impacted by the 2013 Flood with agencies and organizations who provide information and resources for recovery, all in one location,” says Larimer County Recovery Manager Suzanne Bassinger, who adds, “There are so many resources and agencies involved with flood recovery that it can be confusing so please stop by and ask about resources and agencies that can help you in your individual recovery.”
Larimer County will provide recovery information on road and bridge repair, floodplain impacts, damage assessments, building permits and code requirements, flood loss and property taxes, master planning efforts, and debris removal. Other organizations, both public and private, will be available to discuss topics ranging from stream-bank restoration, volunteer availability, disaster recovery, and non-profit community outreach funding, resources, and support. Approximately 25 resource stations will be staffed and ready to provide information.
Public or non-profit organizations with resources available for flood recovery are invited to attend. Interested organizations must contact Suzanne Bassinger, Larimer County Recovery Manager, at 970-498-7148, to register to participate. No organizations can be accommodated without pre-registration.
