Jefferson County PMR
Preliminary Date: July 25, 2012
Case Number: 09-08-0840S
Preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM)
Preliminary Flood Insurance Study (FIS)
Preliminary Summary of Map Actions (SOMA)
Letter of Map Revision (LOMR):
A LOMR is a determination which reflects an official revision to an effective National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) map. LOMRs are issued in place of the physical revision and republication of the effective map. A LOMR may change flood insurance risk zones, floodplain and/or floodway boundary delineations, planimetric features, and/or BFEs or flood depths. The LOMR becomes effective on the date shown on the determination document.
The appeals process for LOMRs includes a formal notification of the change and requires it be published in the local newspaper and Federal Register as soon as possible. Additionally, the appeal process requires that LOMRs are available for public review. As a result, the LOMRs listed below have been made available for public review and comment. Any comments supported by scientific or technical data should be forwarded to your community’s Chief Executive Officer.
Community Contact Information
As with other similar projects undertaken by FEMA and partners in support of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), the primary community contacts are the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Floodplain Administrator (FPA).
The CEO is an elected official of a community (e.g., Mayor, Board of County Commissioners Chair or Chairman, County Council Chair or Chairman) who has the authority to implement and administer laws, ordinances, and regulations for that community.
The FPA is the community official who is responsible for implementing and enforcing floodplain management measures and for monitoring floodplain development. Floodplain management is the operation of a program of corrective and preventative measures for reducing flood damage, including, but not limited to, emergency preparedness plans, flood-control works, and floodplain management regulations.
The CEO and FPA names generally are available on the community Websites. Links to the community Websites appear on the County pages. The links to the County pages are provided in the “Overview of Project in State” section above.
