Changes in Flood Elevation Determinations

AGENCY: Federal Emergency Management Agency, DHS.

ACTION: Interim rule.

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

SUMMARY: This interim rule lists communities where modification of the

of new scientific or technical data. New flood insurance premium rates 
will be calculated from the modified BFEs for new buildings and their 
contents.

DATES: These modified BFEs are currently in effect on the dates listed 
in the table below and revise the Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) in 
effect prior to this determination for the listed communities.
    From the date of the second publication of these changes in a 
newspaper of local circulation, any person has ninety (90) days in 
which to request through the community that the Mitigation Assistant 
Administrator of FEMA reconsider the changes. The modified BFEs may be 
changed during the 90-day period.

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

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

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 the 
other Federal, State, or regional entities. The changed BFEs are in 
accordance with 44 CFR 65.4.

612, a regulatory flexibility analysis is not required.

regulatory action under the criteria of section 3(f) of Executive Order 
12866 of September 30, 1993, Regulatory Planning and Review, 58 FR 
51735.
