Progress Update

California Coastal Analysis and Mapping (CCAMP) for Ventura County Coast

 

FEMA released the Preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) on September 30, 2016. Following the release, public outreach meetings were held in cities of Ventura and in Oxnard in May 2017 to introduce the preliminary maps to the affected communities and to collect comments from residents. During the appeal period which ended in September 2017, the Ventura County Public Works Agency in collaboration with cities of Ventura, Oxnard, and Port Hueneme, and local communities had conducted a detailed technical review of the coastal flood hazard analysis and mapping products and submitted review comments and appeals to FEMA. After resolving all the comments and appeals, FEMA issued a Letter of Final Determination (LFD) on July 29, 2020 and the Preliminary FIRM will become effective on January 29, 2021. According to the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) regulations Section 60.3 (d and c), local communities are required to adopt the effective FIRM and the Flood Insurance Study (FIS) reports thereafter.
