JUNEAU FLOOD MAP REVISION PROJECT
The City and Borough of Juneau and FEMA are in the process of updating flood zone maps. Flood zones are based on both scientific and community-provided data that help identify areas with potential for storm and flood events that could put lives and property in danger. By using recent topographical and engineering data, the City and Borough of Juneau has been working closely with the FEMA to gather more precise information about these areas. The better information that FEMA is able to gather, the more accurate the flood maps that will be produced.
The desired outcomes from this process are maps that will be used by community officials for future development, land use mapping, and hazard mitigation planning. The map designations also inform flood insurance rates for properties that have federally backed loans.
The CBJ and FEMA are accepting comments and appeals concerning the revised flood maps through July 9, 2018.
COMMENTS include corrections or clarifications pertaining to misspellings, labeling, and/or missing information on flood maps.
APPEALS include information indicating that the elevations and/or delineations are scientifically and/or technically incorrect.
Below are 3 links to information that can be important to property owners interested in learning more about their flood risk designation and, possibly, interested in offering comments or instigating an appeal with FEMA.
