The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in collaboration with the County of Ventura and the Faria Beach Homeowners Association (HOA) have been conducting a Letter of Map Revision (LOMR) re-study along the coastal community of Faria Beach, California.
On January 29, 2021, the California Coastal Analysis and Mapping (CCAMP) for the Ventura County Coast floodplain maps, including the Faria Beach, went into effect. See the news item below.
Subsequent to the adoption of CCAMP, Faria Beach HOA filed a Letter of Map Revision application which once adopted will change the effective floodplain boundaries and Base Flood Elevations (BFE) along portions of the Faria Beach coastal community. The Draft Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM) for the affected areas of the Faria Beach may be found through the link below:
Specifically, the flood hazard information will be revised along the Pacific Ocean from a point approximately 600 feet east of the intersection of Hobson Road with the Pacific Coast Highway to a point approximately 1,400 feet west of the intersection of A Lease Canyon Road and the Pacific Coast Highway.
As a result of the mapping revisions the coastal Base Flood Elevations listed for mapped VE Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHA) will decrease two (2) to five (5) feet. Within the area of revision, mapped VE SFHA’s will increase (widen) in some locations and decrease in others. The maximum SFHA increase is approximately 28 feet and the maximum SFHA decrease is approximately 15 feet.
Additionally, maps and detailed analysis of the revision can be reviewed with appointment at:
