If a property owner thinks their property has been inadvertently mapped in a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA), they may submit a request to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for a Letter of Map Change (LOMC). Upon issuance of the new FIRM panels in 2018, FEMA identified LOMC actions for properties and structures located within the City.
