 BC Flood Hazard Mapping Status Report for Property Owners

The Preliminary Flood Map Feedback Portal developed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Region II office is now available. The Portal facilitates the process of submitting and tracking appeals and comments on the preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) and Flood Insurance Study (FIS) reports during the statutory 90-day appeal period for your community.
The Portal can be used by both local community officials and members of the public to submit and track the status of feedback (which will be categorized as either appeals or comments) on the preliminary FIRM and FIS report. It also provides community officials with the ability to review requests submitted by the public and provide their opinion on whether there is sufficient scientific and/or technical information included to support an appeal prior to FEMA review, as required by National Flood Insurance Program regulations.

To access the Portal and for step by step guidance on how to use it, visit here,  Note that use of the Portal is encouraged but not required. You can learn about other ways to submit appeals and comments by clicking here.
