Danbury is part of a pilot program that provides flood insurance savings.
The Western Connecticut Council of Governments is meeting next month to discuss the Regional Community Rating System Program. It's a credit-based incentive program that provides flood insurance savings for policy holders based on municipal participation in flood mitigation activities.
The initial effort will target four municipalities as the pilot area: Danbury, Darien, Greenwich, and Norwalk.
WestCOG says they are best positioned to receive the largest financial benefit from the program. The regional planning agency intends to broaden the program to other member municipalities sometime next spring.
