Use of a Scientific Resolution Panel (SRP) is available to communities in support of the appeal resolution process.

Use of the SRP may only be exercised after FEMA and local communities have been Community 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. The communities affected are listed in the table below.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FEMA proposes to make flood hazard 
determinations for each community listed in the table 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

determinations will also be considered before the FIRM and FIS report

    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

Correction

    In the proposed flood hazard determination notice published at 77 
FR 18844 in the March 28, 2012, issue of the Federal Register, FEMA 
published a table titled ''Cowlitz County, Washington, and Incorporated 
Areas.'' The table contained inaccurate information as to the online 
location for the Preliminary FIRM and FIS report and the building name 
for the Community Map Repository address for the City of Woodland. In 
addition, revisions to the Preliminary FIRM have since been made and 
posted to the online location published as part of this notice. In this 
notice, FEMA is publishing a table containing the accurate information. 
The information provided below should be used in lieu of that 
previously published.
