A Letter of Map Revision (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 Base Flood Elevations (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 that 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 on the Letter of Map Revision pagehave 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 (CEO).
Contact information for the CEO and Floodplain Administrator (FPA) are generally available on the community websites. Links to the community websites appear on the County pages.
