Many have been asking about the timetable for revisions to the FEMA Flood Insurance Rate Maps. I recently got an update from our contacts at the State who will be coordinating this effort. Here is what we expect:
There will be a community meeting during the last week of February or early March.
Preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Maps should be issued in April/May 2013. This will begin a public review like we had a few years ago.
A Letter of Final Determination should be issued in December 2013, which will allow us to adopt the new maps at the Spring 2014 Town Meeting.
New maps will become effective in June 2014.
