FEMA Flood Maps
June 2017 Update
The City of Beverly has been working through the Letter of Map Revision (LOMAR) process with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to dispute the issued 2014 floodplain mapping.
The Department of Public Services and Engineering invite you to a Public Meeting and Presentation of the revised 2017 FEMA Flood Maps and updated Hazard Mitigation Plan for the City of Beverly. The meeting will be held June 22, 2017 at the Beverly Public Library in the Sohier Room at 5 pm.
Modified Flood Hazard Determinations
FEMA has issued modified flood hazard determinations affecting the Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) for the City of Beverly. The City approved a Zoning Amendment to the Floodplain Overlay District Ordinance and adopted the FIRM's in June 2012/2014. The FIRM's impact the North Coastal Watershed (generally south of Route 128). Please view the text of the Zoning Amendment (PDF).
Please see the Viewing the FIRM Panels file first. To determine which Essex Map (FIRM Panel) to view please see the Coastal Workmap Index.
