Updated Preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Maps for Long Island
Mark Greene, Mapping/Assessing Assistant to Selectmen
The Selectmen have received the updated flood maps from FEMA. You may view them online at the Town's Website - http://townoflongisland.us/gis/or paper copies are available to view at Town Hall during regular business hours.
There will be a meeting in Portland on Jan 8th (snow date the 15th time to be announced) for community officials to be briefed on the mapping and adoption process, schedule and appeals requirements.
There will be at least one additional meeting held in the county for the general public focused on explaining the flood insurance rate maps, their options for submitting letters of map amendment or revision applications, insurance implications and requirements. We have, as of this date, not yet received notification of this date and time of the public meeting. Notification will be via the Selectmen's e-mail list and LICA's e-mail list and posted at Town Hall and the Wharf. You can join the Selectmen's list by clicking here: http://www.townoflongisland.us/mailing_lists/ . You can join the LICA list by contacting Chris McDuffie at email@example.com
After the meeting, there will be a statutory 90 day appeal period. Following the resolution of any appeals during that period and a final letter to that effect, communities must adopt the new maps within 6 months in order to stay in good standing in the National Flood Insurance program (Town Meeting vote).
That is a short summary of the process. If near the shore, homeowners would be wise to review the proposed maps NOW and prepare any information they intend to submit in an appeal. We reviewed the drafts back in the spring for clerical errors, road names, etc but it is solely the responsibility of property owners to insure accuracy of their own properties with respect to the flood potential estimated in these maps. There are significant insurance issues involved if you are in or out of the flood zones.
