AGENCY: Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Department of 
Homeland Security.

ACTION: Proposed rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Technical information or comments are requested on the 
proposed Base (1% annual-chance) Flood Elevations (BFEs) and proposed 
BFE modifications for the communities listed below. The BFEs and 
modified BFEs are the basis for the floodplain management measures that 
the community is required either to adopt or to show evidence of being 
already in effect in order to qualify or remain qualified for 
participation in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

DATES: The comment period is ninety (90) days following the second

[[Page 7715]]

publication of this proposed rule in a newspaper of local circulation 
in each community.

ADDRESSES: The proposed BFEs for each community are available for 
inspection at the office of the Chief Executive Officer of each 
community. The respective addresses are listed in the table below.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Doug Bellomo, P.E., Hazard 
Identification Section, Federal Emergency Management Agency, 500 C 
Street, SW., Washington, DC 20472, (202) 646-2903.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Federal Emergency Management Agency 
makes the final determinations listed below for the modified BFEs for 
each community listed. These modified elevations have been published in 
newspapers of local circulation and ninety (90) days have elapsed since 
that publication. The Mitigation Division Director has resolved any 
appeals resulting from this notification.
    These proposed BFEs and modified BFEs, together with the floodplain 
management criteria required by 44 CFR 60.3, are the minimum that are 
required. They should not be construed to mean that the community must 
change any existing ordinances that are more stringent in their 
floodplain management requirements. The community may at any time enact 
stricter requirements of its own, or pursuant to policies established 
by other Federal, State, or regional entities. These proposed 
elevations 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 these elevations are made 
final, and for the contents in these buildings.
    National Environmental Policy Act. This proposed rule is 
categorically excluded from the requirements of 44 CFR Part 10, 
Environmental Consideration. No environmental impact assessment has 
been prepared.
    Regulatory Flexibility Act. The Mitigation Division Director 
certifies that this rule is exempt from the requirements of the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act because modified base flood elevations are 
required by the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, 42 U.S.C. 4105, 
and are required to maintain community eligibility in the NFIP. No 
regulatory flexibility analysis has been prepared.
    Regulatory Classification. This proposed rule is not a significant 
regulatory action under the criteria of Section 3(f) of Executive Order 
12866 of September 30, 1993, Regulatory Planning and Review, 58 FR 
51735.
    Executive Order 13132, Federalism. This rule involves no policies 
that have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132.
    Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform. This rule meets the 
applicable standards of Executive Order 12988.
