2014 Coastal Floodplain Update


The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is updating Homer's Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) for Homer's coastline.  The Homer Spit coastline was updated in 2013 and does not change with this update.  All other coastal properties have redefined flood areas and new base flood elevations which affect flood insurance rates. See maps below.

For more information, please attend the Open House at 12 p.m. on September 11, 2014 in Cowles Council Chambers located at City Hall, 491 E Pioneer Avenue.

Representatives of FEMA, the State of Alaska, and the City will be available to provide information and answer questions.
