Floodprone Structures Acquisitions Becomes Park Area

TULSA, OK - Floods have devastated the City of Tulsa many times, an average of about once every 5 years. Through the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) and the Flood Mitigation Assistance (FMA) Program, the City has taken measures to mitigate against these costly floods. The City has also taken measures to increase public awareness and support of flood mitigation via the production of videos and publications.

Through HMGP funding, the City of Tulsa acquired 17 repetitive loss structures. An additional five structures were acquired under the FMA program. These structures were among the 100 repetitive loss structures addressed in the City's Master Drainage Plan. As a result of the acquisition, all acquired homes were demolished and the land was reverted to a park area and water detention site.

The City also received a public awareness grant to educate and improve flood awareness throughout the City and county. Through the FMA program, the community received a planning grant to produce a Flood Mitigation Plan aimed at further reducing repetitive loss within the City of Tulsa.
