ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: Base (1% annual-chance) Flood Elevations and modified Base 
Flood Elevations (BFEs) are made final for the communities listed 
below. The BFEs and modified BFEs are the basis for the floodplain 
management measures that each 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: Effective Date: The date of issuance of the Flood Insurance Rate 
Map (FIRM) showing BFEs and modified BFEs for each community. This date 
may be obtained by contacting the office where the FIRM is available 
for inspection as indicated in the table below.

ADDRESSES: The final base flood elevations 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

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Federal Emergency Management Agency 
makes the final determinations listed below for the BFEs and 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.

and maintain community eligibility in the NFIP. No regulatory 
flexibility analysis has been prepared.
