NOTICE TO
FLOOD INSURANCE STUDY USERS
Communities participating in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) have established
repositories of flood hazard date for floodplain management and flood insurance purposes. This
Flood Insurance Study (FIS) report may not contain all data available within the Community
Map Repository. Please contact the Community Map Repository for any additional data.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) may revise and republish part of all of
this FIS report at any time. In addition, FEMA may revise part of the FIS report by the Letter of
Map Revision process, which does not involve republication or redistribution of the FIS report.
Therefore, users should consult with community officials and check the Community Map
Repository to obtain the most current FIS report components.
Selected Flood Insurance Rate Map panels for this community contain information that was
previous shown separately on the corresponding Flood Boundary and Floodway Map panels (eg:
floodways, cross sections). In addition, former flood hazard zone designations have been
changed as follows:
Old Zone(s)

New Zone

Al through A30

AE

VI through V30

Initial Countywide FIS Effective Date: TBD
First Revised Countywide FIS Revision Date: TBD
