These proposed flood hazard determinations, 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 flood hazard determinations 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 the FIRM and FIS report become effective. The communities affected by the flood hazard determinations are provided in the table below. Any request for reconsideration of the revised flood hazard determinations shown on the Preliminary FIRM and FIS report that satisfies the data requirements outlined in 44 CFR 67.6(b) is considered an appeal. Comments unrelated to the flood hazard determinations will also be considered before the FIRM and FIS report are made final. 70455 Use of a Scientific Resolution Panel (SRP) is available to communities in support of the appeal resolution process. SRPs are independent panels of experts in hydrology, hydraulics, and other pertinent sciences established to review conflicting scientific and technical data and provide recommendations for resolution. Use of the SRP may only be exercised after FEMA and local communities have been engaged in a collaborative consultation process for at least 60 days without a mutually acceptable resolution of an appeal. Additional information regarding the SRP process can be found online at http://www.floodsrp.org/pdfs/ srp_fact_sheet.pdf. Correction In the proposed flood hazard determination notice published at 77 FR 44651 in the July 30, 2012, issue of the Federal Register, FEMA published a table titled ‘‘Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, and Incorporated Areas.’’ This table contained a Web page address through which the Preliminary FIRM, and where applicable, FIS report for the communities listed in the table could be accessed online. A Revised Preliminary FIRM and/or FIS report have subsequently been issued for some or all of the communities listed in the table. The information available through the web page address listed in the table has been updated to reflect the Revised Preliminary information and is to be used in lieu of the information previously available.

    In the proposed flood hazard determination notice published at 77 
FR 44651 in the July 30, 2012, issue of the Federal Register, FEMA 
published a table titled ``Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, and 
Incorporated Areas.'' This table contained a Web page address through 
which the Preliminary FIRM, and where applicable, FIS report for the 
communities listed in the table could be accessed online. A Revised 
Preliminary FIRM and/or FIS report have subsequently been issued for 
some or all of the communities listed in the table. The information 
available through the web page address listed in the table has been 
updated to reflect the Revised Preliminary information and is to be 
used in lieu of the information previously available.
