ACTION: Flood elevation determinations:
DOCUMENT ACTION: Final rule.
Final Flood Elevation Determination
Base (1% annual chance) flood elevations and modified base flood elevations are made final for the communities listed below. The base flood elevations and modified base flood elevations are the basis for the floodplain management measures that each community is required either to adopt or to show evidence of being already in effect in order to qualify or remain qualified for participation in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA or Agency) makes final determinations listed below of base flood elevations and modified based flood elevations for each community listed. The proposed base flood elevations and proposed modified base flood elevations were published in newspapers of local circulation and an opportunity for the community or individuals to appeal the proposed determinations to or through the community was provided for a period of ninety (90) days . The proposed base flood elevations and proposed modified base flood elevations were also published in the Federal Register.
This final rule is issued in accordance with Section 110 of the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, 42 U.S.C. 4104 and 44 CFR part 67.
The Agency has developed criteria for floodplain management in floodprone areas in accordance with 44 CFR part 60.

address cited below for each community.
The base flood elevations and modified base flood elevations are made final in the communities listed below. Elevations at selected locations in each community are shown.

No regulatory flexibility analysis has been prepared.
