90-Day Appeal Period: January 24 – April 22, 2024

Overview: Munds Park Remapping Project

On July 20, 2023, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) delivered updated preliminary flood maps. The maps identified the revised flood hazards in the Munds Park drainage area. 

To help inform the public about the new preliminary flood maps, the County and FEMA hosted a Flood Risk Open House on September 18, 2023. For those unable to attend in person, a virtual Flood Risk Open House, which provided an overview, was held on September 13, 2023. 

Before the new Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) can become effective, there will be a 90-day appeal period. During that time, residents or businesses with supporting technical and scientific information, such as detailed hydraulic or hydrologic data, were able to appeal the flood risk information on the preliminary maps and/or provide comments. This period started on January 24, 2024 and will end on April 22, 2024. Appeals, comments and, questions can be emailed to FEMAFloodMap@coconino.az.gov or call 928-679-8881.

Once the appeal period ends and all appeals and/or comments are addressed, the flood maps will be finalized and issued. The new flood maps are targeted to become effective by early 2025.
