FEMA has issued new preliminary flood insurance maps for the City of Prescott and surrounding unincorporated Yavapai County. FEMA provides a 90-day appeal period when new or revised flood elevations are proposed and when any regulatory floodway or Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) boundary or zone designations are added or modified. Before the appeal period is initiated, FEMA will publish the proposed Flood Hazard Determination (FHD) in the Federal Register and notify the community's Chief Executive Officer (Mayor) of the determination. FEMA will then publish information about the proposed FHD in a local newspaper at least twice, which will start the 90-day appeal period. The appeal period for the new maps should last until 12/31/15 and the new effective maps are anticipated on 10/6/16.

The new preliminary flood maps are available for viewing at the following websites:
