How can I determine if my property will be impacted by FEMA’s Flood Risk Mapping Project?

FEMA, not the City, will release preliminary maps for the community to review and provide comments on during the 90-day public appeal and comment period. Following the appeal and comment period, FEMA will finalize the flood maps for adoption. To view the project timeline, visit srcity.org/FEMAFloodMapping. The City is unable to determine at this time if any particular property or structure will be identified in the revised flood maps. City staff can only supply the results of our local flood study that does not identify flood risk by property.
