FEMA Letter of Map Revision (LOMR) Technical Workshop
Presented at the Georgia Association of Floodplain Management 2020 conference.
This workshop describes what the FEMA Letter of Map Change (LOMC) process looks like, with a focus on the Letter of Map Revision (LOMR) process. For projects that fall within or near a flood hazard area, part of the land disturbance permitting process is to investigate the impacts of the proposed project on the base flood elevations. Provides a better understanding some of FEMA’s acronyms, what the LOMC process is, what forms and fees are required, and what modeling efforts are expected. Works through some typical examples of when a CLOMR/LOMR versus a no-rise study might be needed, some examples of differences by jurisdiction, and some lessons learned.
