FEMA & Cumberland County Flood Mapping Project

Property owners newly "mapped" in to a special flood hazard area will be receiving notification letters that will help them understand the impacts of these changes and offer resources for better understanding of any new requirements.

FEMA staff will host an open house on November 6, 2019 from 5 - 8 PM at the County Planning Office located at 310 Allen Road, Carlisle, PA to review and discuss the Preliminary Flood Rate Insurance Maps (FIRMs).  FEMA and County Planning staff will be available to assist Cumberland County residents with their questions and concerns regarding the new floodplain boundaries and how to make an appeal if they feel it may be incorrect.
