New by FEMA, "Changes Coming to the National Flood Insurance Program - What to Expect." It talks about rate changes and who will be affected starting in 2013 and 2014.
Homer participates in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).
In 2012, FEMA released the DRAFT flood maps of the Homer Spit. The flood maps modify the areas that would be inundated by the base (1% annual chance) flood elevations; and flood zone designation. The DRAFT flood maps are on display at City Hall or by using the links below.
FEMA has postponed the adoption of the Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM) until later in 2013. Once FEMA has adopted the FIRM, they must be adopted by the City Council.
Contact the Planning staff at 907-435-3118 if you have any questions about the DRAFT flood maps and how it applies to your property.
We can also make a custom map of your property and email it to you. (Free!) Call 907-235-3106 with your email address, and parcel number or legal description or address.
