NEW HANOVER CTY - New Hanover County, in partnership with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the NC Floodplain Mapping
Program, has published preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMS) and a Flood Insurance Study (FIS) report for all areas within the County.  The preliminary revised FIRMs and FIS report include proposed flood hazard information for certain locations in the unincorporated areas of the County.  If finalized, these flood hazard determinations will become the basis for the floodplain management measures that New Hanover County must adopt or show evidence of having in
effect to remain qualified for participation in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).
Prior to being finalized, an appeal period to allow community officials and citizens will be held to allow an opportunity to appeal the proposed flood hazard information presented on the preliminary FIRMs and FIS report.  The appeal period will begin on October 29, 2015 and run for a period of 90 days.
