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 
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.
    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

SRP may only be exercised after FEMA and local communities have been 
engaged in a collaborative consultation process for at least 60 days

determinations will also be considered before the FIRM and FIS report 
are made final.

Correction

    In the proposed flood hazard determination notice published at 80 
FR 42523 in the July 17, 2015, issue of the Federal Register, FEMA 
published a table titled ``Jackson County, MO, and Incorporated 
Areas''. This table contained inaccurate information as to the 
community map repository for the City of Kansas City featured in the 
table.
    In this document, FEMA is publishing a table containing the 
accurate information. The information provided below should be used in 
lieu of that previously published for the City of Kansas City.
