The City of Arlington City Council approved Resolution No. 16-027 on February 23, 2016 authorizing the adoption of the Repetitive Loss Area Analysis (RLAA) Plan. The RLAA Plan identifies and evaluates repetitive loss properties throughout the City. The RLAA Plan delineates repetitive loss areas (RLA) based upon the location of the repetitive loss properties and suggests ways to mitigate or reduce flood losses in each RLA. The RLAA Plan also identifies specific projects for the City to complete to mitigate or reduce repetitive flooding in these areas. There is a total of twenty-one (21) Repetitive Loss Areas (RLA) identified throughout the City by the RLAA Plan.

The RLAA Plan was prepared as part of the City's participation in the FEMA Community Rating System (CRS) Program. Inclusion in the CRS Program provides flood insurance rate premium discounts to all property owners in the City. In May 2018, the City achieved a Class 6 rating in the CRS Program allowing property owners to receive a 20% discount if they are within the Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) and a 10% discount if they are outside of the SFHA

In order to retain CRS credit for the RLAA Plan, the City must prepare an annual progress report on the various activities the City is performing as referenced in the RLAA Plan. The RLAA Plan and the 2018 Annual Progress Report is found below. Should you have any questions about the Repetitive Loss Area Analysis Plan or the annual report, please contact the Public Works and Transportation Department at 817-459-6550.
