SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FEMA proposes to make flood hazard 
determinations for each community listed below, in accordance with 
section 110 of the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, 42 U.S.C. 
4104, and 44 CFR 67.4(a).
    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 also are 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 tables below. Any request for reconsideration of the 
revised flood hazard information shown on the Preliminary FIRM and FIS

flood hazard determinations also will be considered before the FIRM and 
FIS report become effective.
    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 only may 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://floodsrp.org/pdfs/srp_fact_sheet.pdf.
