In response to the concerns and comments raised by the residents and elected officials regarding the draft law, the ministère des Affaires municipales et de l’Habitation du Québec issued a note on Thursday morning about the adjustment made to the outlined areas.
It is said that an adjustment of the mapping of territories that have been flooded in 2017 and 2019 is underway in order to “reflect the reality more faithfully”. The adjusted version of this map will be made public at the time of the publication of the Law by the Government of Quebec.
It is also said that homeowners whose buildings are not located in 0-20-year-old flood zones and have not been flooded in 2017 or 2019 will not be subject to the ZIS.
Municipalities and those affected by changes to the flood zone may comment on the new version of the map until August 19, 2019, at zis2019 mamh.gouv.qc.ca.
