Repetitive loss area address list

The Village of Wheeling currently participates in the Community
Rating System (CRS) program which is a voluntary incentive program that
recognizes and encourages community floodplain management activities
that exceed the minimum NFIP requirements. One of the requirements of
the program is to detail which areas are deemed “Repetitive Loss”,
meaning the property has had two or more insurance claims over $1000 in a
10 year period. A secondary requirement of the program is to inform all
residents that live within the repetitive loss area about their
situation and provide them with flood insurance information. By using
GIS, the village was able to create a list of addresses for all
properties within the repetitive loss area so that letters could be sent
to each resident.

Because the village already had an existing address database using a
point as each address, creating a list of addresses just required
selecting the points that fell within the repetitive address areas. The
addresses were then exported into Microsoft Excel to be used in various
mail merge applications. If not for GIS, the addresses would have had to
be typed in manually by looking at the various repetitive loss maps
created in another mapping type program. By using GIS, the village was
able to quickly create a product that would have taken a longer time
using previous methods.
