ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: Comments are requested on proposed flood hazard determinations, which may include additions or modifications of any Base Flood Elevation (BFE), base flood depth, Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) boundary or zone designation, or regulatory floodway on the Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs), and where applicable, in the supporting Flood Insurance Study (FIS) reports for the communities listed in the table below. The purpose of this notice is to seek general information and comment regarding the preliminary FIRM, and where applicable, the FIS report that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has provided to the affected communities. The FIRM and FIS report are the basis of the floodplain management measures that the community is required either to adopt or to show evidence of having in effect in order to qualify or remain qualified for participation in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). In addition, the FIRM and FIS report, once effective, will be used by insurance agents and others to calculate appropriate flood insurance premium rates for new buildings and the contents of those buildings. SUMMARY: Comments are to be submitted on or before October 17, 2018. ADDRESSES: The Preliminary FIRM, and where applicable, the FIS report for each community are available for inspection at both the online location https://www.fema.gov/preliminary floodhazarddata and the respective DATES: Community Map Repository address listed in the tables below. Additionally, the current effective FIRM and FIS report for each community are accessible online through the FEMA Map Service Center at https:// msc.fema.gov for comparison. You may submit comments, identified by Docket No. FEMA–B–1841, to Rick Sacbibit, Chief, Engineering Services Branch, Federal Insurance and Mitigation Administration, FEMA, 400 C Street SW, Washington, DC 20472, (202) 646–7659, or (email) patrick.sacbibit@fema.dhs.gov. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Rick Sacbibit, Chief, Engineering Services Branch, Federal Insurance and Mitigation Administration, FEMA, 400 C Street SW, Washington, DC 20472, (202) 646–7659, or (email) patrick.sacbibit@fema.dhs.gov; or visit the FEMA Map Information eXchange (FMIX) online at https:// www.floodmaps.fema.gov/fhm/fmx_ main.html. 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 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 Community 34153 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 https://www.floodsrp.org/pdfs/ srp_overview.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 https:// www.fema.gov/preliminaryfloodhazard data and the respective Community Map Repository address listed in the tables. For communities with multiple ongoing Preliminary studies, the studies can be identified by the unique project number and Preliminary FIRM date 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 https://msc.fema.gov for comparison.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Laura Whorton, at the above address, phone number, or email. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Introduction With this notice, we make the draft long-range transportation plans (LRTPs) for Regions 2, 6, and 8 of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service available for public review and comment. When finalized, the LRTPs will apply to Servicemanaged lands in Region 2 (Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas), Region 6 (Colorado, Kansas, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming), and Region 8 (California and Nevada). Background The Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act (Pub. L. 114– 94) requires that all Federal land management agencies conduct longrange transportation planning in a manner that is consistent with metropolitan planning organizations and State departments of transportation planning. We initiated these LRTPs to bring the Service into compliance with PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the FAST Act and to achieve the following goals: • Establish a defensible structure for sound transportation planning and decision-making; • Establish a vision, mission, goals, and objectives for transportation planning in each of these three Service Regions; • Implement coordinated and cooperative transportation partnerships in an effort to improve the Service’s transportation infrastructure; • Integrate transportation planning and funding for national wildlife refuges and national fish hatcheries into existing and future Service management plans and strategies; • Increase awareness of alternative transportation systems and associated benefits; • Develop best management practices for transportation improvements on Service lands; and • Serve as a pilot project for the implementation of a region-level transportation planning process within the Service. LRTP Mission, Goals, and Objectives Through a collaborative effort, the National Wildlife Refuge System and the Fish and Aquatic Conservation Program, in cooperation with the planning and visitor services programs within these three Regions, have contributed to defining the mission, goals, and objectives presented in this document. The resulting mission, goals, and objectives are intended to provide a systematic approach to guide the process for evaluating and selecting transportation improvement programs for the Service lands in these Regions. These guiding principles have shaped the development, conclusions, and recommendations of these LRTPs. While each Region’s specific mission, vision, E:\FR\FM\19JYN1.SGM 19JYN1

and the contents of those buildings.

DATES: Comments are to be submitted on or before October 17, 2018.

ADDRESSES: The Preliminary FIRM, and where applicable, the FIS report 
for each community are available for inspection at both the online 
location https://www.fema.gov/preliminaryfloodhazarddata and the 
respective Community Map Repository address listed in the tables below. 
Additionally, the current effective FIRM and FIS report for each

eXchange (FMIX) online at https://www.floodmaps.fema.gov/fhm/fmx_main.html.

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 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 https://www.floodsrp.org/pdfs/srp_overview.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 
https://www.fema.gov/preliminaryfloodhazarddata and the respective 
Community Map Repository address listed in the tables. For communities 
with multiple ongoing Preliminary studies, the studies can be 
identified by the unique project number and Preliminary FIRM date 
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 https://msc.fema.gov for comparison.
