The Planning Department recently shared a time-sensitive memo with the Board of Selectmen about FEMA Flood Insurance.
The National Flood Insurance Act of 1968, as amended, authorizes FEMA to update Flood Insurance Risk Maps (FIRM).
FEMA must provide communities with a 90-day appeal period when FEMA proposes new or modified flood hazard information, i.e., Base Flood Elevations (BFEs), base flood depths, Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHAs), SFHA zone designations, and regulatory floodways for a community.
The appeal period ends on June 7, 2021. For those wishing to review the Appeal Period Notice or a Guide on Appeals Processing, please visit the Town's website at: https://www.doverma.gov/549/Documents
