calculate appropriate flood insurance premium rates for new buildings 
and the contents of those buildings.

DATES: Comments are to be submitted on or before May 14, 2014.

ADDRESSES: The Preliminary FIRM, and where applicable, the FIS report 
for each community are available for inspection at both the online

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

[[Page 8729]]

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 
report that satisfies the data requirements outlined in 44 CFR 67.6(b) 
is considered an appeal. Comments unrelated to the 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.
    The watersheds and/or communities affected are listed in the tables 
below. The Preliminary FIRM, and where applicable, FIS report for each 
community are available for inspection at both the online location and 
the respective Community Map Repository address listed in the tables. 
Additionally, the current effective FIRM and FIS report for each 
community are accessible online through the FEMA Map Service Center at 
www.msc.fema.gov for comparison.
