FEMA flood maps to be updated for Cumberland County communities

Cumberland County Communities:

Within the last couple weeks, some communities received a notice from FEMA, along with a few updated preliminary map panels dated March 28, 2018.  In some instances, your community received a letter simply because you share a panel with another community that had changes. Below is a quick list I put together showing you which panels have been changed and which communities are affected by it.

If your community did not receive a letter, all of the preliminary map panels issued for your community dated April 14, 2017 remain the same.

Now that these panels have been issued, the next step is publication of the mapping notice in the Federal Register and 2 local newspaper publications.  FEMA will send you notice of which newspaper and the anticipated dates of the local publications.  The 90-day appeal period will begin on the date of the second local publication.

At this point in time, we are still on target for FEMA to issue the final map date in January, 2019 with a July, 2019 effective date.  If you have any questions, please contact me or Janet at your convenience.
