FEMA Revising Flood Insurance Rate Maps

NEW Information!

FEMA is revising flood insurance rate maps for portions of Maricopa County. You are affected if your property lies within a newly designated special flood hazard area.

Is your property affected?

This map generally identifies the newly designated special flood hazard areas, which are south of Rio Verde Drive and east of 128th Street.

If your property lies within the designated area, or you think it does, you can verify by accessing either of these two mapping systems and finding your specific parcel:

Notification

The city has mailed postcards to property owners in affected areas.


Appeals Process

Residents will have a chance to appeal FEMA's findings through Dec. 3, 2014. Appeals must be based on scientific or technical data. The city will review all appeals before forwarding them to FEMA. That agency will make the final determination on the outcome of an appeal.

Appeals should be sent to: 
The Honorable W.J. “Jim” Lane
Mayor, City of Scottsdale
3939 N. Drinkwater Blvd.
Scottsdale, AZ 85251

FEMA is slated to adopt the revised flood insurance rate maps, which are now considered preliminary, after public appeals and protests are addressed. This should be completed in late 2015. New flood insurance requirements will then be in effect.
