FEMA PUBLIC NOTICE OF PROPOSED FLOOD HAZARD DETERMINATION AS FOLLOWS:

DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY

Federal Emergency Management Agency
Proposed Flood Hazard Determinations
AGENCY: Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA, Department of Homeland Security)

SUMMARY:
  Flood hazard determinations may include additions or modifications of any Base Flood Elevation (BFE), Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) boundary or zone designation, or regulatory floodway shown on the FIRM, and if applicable, within the FIS report. SFHAs are areas subject to inundation by the base (1-percent-annual-chance) flood and include the following flood zones: A, AO, AH, A1-A30, AE, A99, AR, AR/A1-A30, AR/AE, AR/AO, AR/AH, AR/A, VO, V1-V30, VE, and V.Floodways are the channel of a river or other watercourse and the adjacent land areas that must be reserved in order to discharge the base flood without cumulatively increasing the water surface elevation more than a designated height. Comments on other aspects of the FIRM and FIS report will also be considered. The FIRM and FIS report are the basis for the floodplain management measures that your community is required to either adopt or show evidence of having in effect in order to qualify or remain qualified for participation in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). In addition, the FIRM and FIS report, once effective, will be used by insurance agents, and others to calculate the appropriate flood insurance premium rates for new buildings and the contents in these buildings.

ADDRESSES: The FIRM and FIS report showing the proposed flood hazard determinations can be viewed at the map repository addresses or the online location listed in the table below. Lessees and owners of real property are encouraged to review the FIRM, FIS report, and related materials.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Rick Sacbibit, Chief, Engineering Services Branch, Federal Insurance and Mitigation Administration, FEMA, 400 C Street SW., Washington, DC 20472, (202)646-7659, or (e-mail) patrick.sacbibit@fema.dhs.gov; or visit the FEMA Map Information eXchange (FMIX) online at https://www.floodmaps.fema.gov/fhm/fmx_main.html.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FEMA gives notice of the proposed flood hazard determinations in accordance with Section 110 of the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, 42 U.S.C. 4104, and Part 67, Subpart 4(a) of Title 44 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). These flood hazard determinations may include additions or modifications of any BFE, SFHA boundary or zone designation, or regulatory floodway on the FIRM, and if applicable, within the FIS report. These proposed flood hazard determinations, together with the floodplain management criteria required by 44 CFR 60.3, are minimum requirements. They should not be construed to mean that your community must change any existing ordinances that are more stringent in their floodplain management requirements. Your community may, at any time, enact stricter requirements of its own, or pursuant to policies established by other Federal, State, or regional entities.These flood hazard determinations are used to meet the floodplain management requirements of the NFIP and are also used to calculate the appropriate flood insurance premium rates for new buildings built after the FIRM and FIS report becomes effective.
