Flood Plain Remap for Crystal Creek

The Villages of Schiller Park and Franklin Park hired an engineering firm to obtain a Letter of Map Revision (LOMR) or a Flood Plain Remap for Crystal Creek. The Floodplain Remap must be approved by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). The Flood Plain Remap has been approved preliminarily and is currently in a 120-day waiting period to take effect. The Flood Plain Remap should become effective on December 7, 2018.

In November 2018 the Village sent a letter to each of the 400+ affected residents and businesses to share details of the Flood Plain Remap. The letter explains the process on how this new map applies to individual properties. The letter will also include a map of the residential or business properties showing the property under the old 2008 floodplain and where it is in the new floodplain map which takes effect December 7, 2018.

The floodplain maps are available on the website in electronic format by clicking here. In addition the Village has large versions of the 2008 Floodplain map and the new 2018 Floodplain map on display at the Village Hall and the Library for resident review.

If you do not receive a letter and are unsure why or if you have questions about the floodplain remap process please contact Assistant Village Manager Brian Bursiek at (847) 671-8534 or via email at
