SUMMARY: Technical information or comments are requested on the 
proposed Base (1% annual chance) Flood Elevations (BFEs) and proposed 
BFEs modifications for the communities listed below. The 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 
publication of this proposed rule in a newspaper of local circulation

inspection at the office of the Chief Executive Officer of each

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: William R. Blanton, Jr., Engineering 
Management Section, Mitigation Division, Federal Emergency Management 
Agency, 500 C Street, SW., Washington, DC 20472 (202) 646-3151.

67.4(a).
    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. An environmental impact 
assessment has not been prepared.

Regulatory Flexibility Act

    As flood elevation determinations are not within the scope of the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601-612, a regulatory flexibility 
analysis is not required.

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.
