The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has completed the coastal restudy of the City and new preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Maps have been issued.
A review by city staff indicates that the modernization appears to have moved approximately 1,000 structures out of the Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) also known as a high risk area. While a majority of the affected structures were removed from the SFHA, there may be some structures that have been remapped into a high risk area.
