New Flood Maps for Sarasota County in 2016

The Federal Emergency Mandate Agency (FEMA) released preliminary flood maps for Sarasota County in December.

This began a public comment period (lasting 90 days) for the purpose of filing appeals and protests. Federal review will likely begin in May. It is expected that new maps will go into effect in the beginning of 2016 along with new flood insurance requirements. Manatee County's new maps went into effect on March 17, 2014.
