Excerpt from Notice Sent Prior to Informational Meeting Held at the City Council Chambers on November 16, 2015
San Francisco Bay Area Coastal Study, California. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is performing detailed coastal engineering analyses and mapping of the San Francisco Bay shoreline within the nine San Francisco Bay Area counties. The analysis and mapping will revise and update the flood and wave data for the Alameda County Flood Insurance Study report and Flood Insurance Rate Map panels along the San Francisco Bay shoreline.
FEMA conducted a Flood Risk Review meeting for the incorporated cities North of the San Mateo Bridge, including Hayward, San Leandro, Oakland, Alameda, Emeryville, Albany, and Berkeley in March 2014. The cities reviewed and commented on the draft work maps. FEMA produced the Preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) for northern Alameda, on April 16, 2015.
FEMA conducted a Community Consultation Officer (CCO) meeting to review the preliminary FIRM panels with community officials in May 2015.
In an effort to assist Northern Alameda County and incorporated areas in circulating the preliminary data, digital copies of the revised FIRM panels, FIS report, and Digital FIRM database has been posted to FEMA's Map Service Center. FEMA has also posted the Summary of Map Actions, a post-preliminary project status fact sheet, and a Changes Since Last FIRM map.
