The Proposed Maps released for public comment prior to the September 4, 2013 adoption contain the following information:

Classification (CLSF) Maps - Contain information regarding:

  • Coastal Transects - Cross section taken perpendicular to the shoreline to represent a segment of coast with similar characteristics.
  • Special Flood Hazard Areas - The land area covered by the floodwaters of the base flood is the Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) on NFIP maps. The SFHA is the area where the NFIP's floodplain management regulations must be enforced and the area where the mandatory purchase of flood insurance applies. The SFHA includes Zones A, AO, AH, A1-30, AE, A99, AR, AR/A1-30, AR/AE, AR/AO, AR/AH, AR/A, VO, V1-30, VE, and V.
  • Other Areas of Flood Hazard - Certain floodplains and flood-related hazards are less common, more destructive and harder to map than riverine, coastal, alluvial fan, and shallow flooding. Special hazards include coastal erosion, tsunamis, closed basin lakes, uncertain flow paths, dam breaks, ice jams, and mudflows.
