Public Notice
FEMA and the Town of New Shoreham are updating our communities flood maps with the ultimate goal of protecting the community and its citizens from flood related losses.
FEMA develops our communities new National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) Maps as floodplains are constantly changing due to construction and environmental changes such as rain, wind, poor drainage and wave action.  This information is provided to communities in the form of Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) for the communities to use, better identify, assess, communicate about and mitigate flood risk.  FIRMs are used by insurance agents and lenders to determine where flood insurance must be purchased and how much that insurance will cost property owners.
The new flood maps will provide updated information about flood risk that will allow homeowners to make more informed decisions about protecting their home.  Property owners may find that their flood risk has increased, decreased or stayed the same since the last time the Town adopted the Flood Maps.
The Town and FEMA encourage citizens to review the proposed FIRMs to learn about their flood risk and identify any questions they have with the information provided.  If you own property on the western shoreline of the Island, in particular from Grace’s Cove Road north, Champlin Road (Coast Guard Road) to the North Light House and along the shoreline of the Great Salt Pond, you are located in areas of proposed velocity zone increase which may affect your flood insurance rates.  After reviewing the proposed FIRMs, there are two ways citizens can provide feedback on the FIRMs (1) submit comments or (2) make an appeal.
The proposed FIRMs are available for review at Town Hall in the Building Department weekdays 8am to 3pm.  If you have any questions after reviewing the FIRMs please contact Marc Tillson, local Floodplain Coordinator @466-3206 or 466-3216.
