During the West Plains City Council meeting Monday evening, Planning Director Emily Gibson showed the council the proposed changeless to the floodplain map, compared to the current official one from 2011. Gibson said the changes should narrow the floodplain, meaning fewer property owners will be required to get flood insurance through FEMA’s National Flood Insurance Program. She said that there will be a public hearing to discuss the changes at the next Planning & Zoning Commission meeting Jan. 14.
