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 modified BFEs 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 ADDRESSES: E:\FR\FM\14JYR1.SGM 14JYR1 40181 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 135 / Monday, July 14, 2008 / Rules and Regulations buildings.

44 CFR Part 65


Changes in Flood Elevation Determinations

AGENCY: Federal Emergency Management Agency, DHS.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: Modified Base (1 % annual-chance) Flood Elevations (BFEs) are 
finalized for the communities listed below. These modified BFEs will be 
used to calculate flood insurance premium rates for new buildings and 
their contents.

DATES: The effective dates for these modified BFEs are indicated on the 
following table and revise the Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) in 
effect for the listed communities prior to this date.

ADDRESSES: The modified 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: William R. Blanton, Jr., Engineering 
Management Branch, Mitigation Directorate, Federal Emergency Management 
Agency, 500 C Street, SW., Washington, DC 20472, (202) 646-3151.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Federal Emergency Management Agency 
(FEMA) makes the final determinations listed below of the modified BFEs 
for each community listed. These modified BFEs have been published in 
newspapers of local circulation and ninety (90) days have elapsed since 
that publication. The Mitigation Division Director of FEMA resolved any 
appeals resulting from this notification.
    The modified BFEs are not listed for each community in this notice. 
However, this final rule includes the address of the Chief Executive 
Officer of the community where the modified BFEs determinations are 
available for inspection.
    The modified BFEs are made pursuant to section 206 of the Flood 
Disaster Protection Act of 1973, 42 U.S.C. 4105, and are in accordance 
with the National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, 42 U.S.C. 4001 et seq., 
and with 44 CFR part 65.
    For rating purposes, the currently effective community number is 
shown and must be used for all new policies and renewals.
    The modified BFEs are the basis for the floodplain management 
measures that the community is required to either adopt or to show 
evidence of being already in effect in order to qualify or to remain 
qualified for participation in the National Flood Insurance Program 
(NFIP).
    These 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 modified BFEs 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

[[Page 40181]]

buildings. The changes in BFEs are in accordance with 44 CFR 65.4.
    National Environmental Policy Act. This final 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 final 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 final rule involves no 
policies that have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132, 
Federalism.
    Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform. This final rule meets 
the applicable standards of Executive Order 12988.
