Floodplain status clarified for lakefront lots
It has taken nearly a decade of work, but the Association finally has a signed assurance that Seven Lakes West's lakefront lots are not in a high hazard flood zone, President Shepard reported during Tuesday's Meeting. The lower risk designation means Lake Auman residents should not have to purchase expensive federal flood insurance.
Gerhard Hergenhahn spearheaded the effort to obtain official notification from Moore County that Lake Auman lots are not located within a Special Flood Hazard Area; Shepard thanked Hergenhahn for his effort, prompting a round of applause from the assembled landowners.
