already in effect in order to qualify or remain qualified for 
participation in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

DATES: The date of issuance of the Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) 
showing BFEs and modified BFEs for each community. This date may be 
obtained by contacting the office where the maps are available for 
inspection as indicated in the table below.

ADDRESSES: The final BFEs for each community are available for 
inspection at the office of the Chief Executive Officer of each 
community. The respective addresses are listed in the table below.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Federal Emergency Management Agency 
(FEMA) makes the final determinations listed below for the modified 
BFEs for each community listed. These modified elevations have been 
published in newspapers of local circulation and ninety (90) days have 
elapsed since that publication. The Deputy Associate Administrator for 
Mitigation has resolved any appeals resulting from this notification.

made final in the communities listed below. Elevations at selected 
locations in each community are shown.
    National Environmental Policy Act. This final rule is categorically 
excluded from the requirements of 44 CFR part 10, Environmental 
Consideration. An environmental impact assessment has not been

regulatory action under the criteria of section 3(f) of Executive Order
