The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) publishes proposed determinations of base (1-percent-annual-chance) flood elevations (BFEs) and modified BFEs for communities participating in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), in accordance with Section 110 of the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, 42 U.S.C. 4104, and 44 CFR 67.4(a). These proposed BFEs and modified BFEs, together with the floodplain management criteria required by 44 CFR 60.3, are the minimum that are required. They should not be construed to mean that the community must change any existing ordinances that are more stringent in their floodplain management requirements. The community may at any time enact stricter requirements of its own, or pursuant to policies established by other Federal, State, or regional entities. These proposed BFEs are used to meet the floodplain management requirements of the NFIP and are also used to calculate the appropriate flood insurance premium rates for new buildings built after these elevations are made final, and for the contents in these buildings.


In proposed rule FR Doc. 02-2660, published February 5, 2002 (67 FR 5246), make the following correction to the addresses published under the authority of § 67.4. On page 5248, revise the text following the table for Greene County, Missouri, to read as follows:

Maps are available for inspection at the County Environmental Office, County Courthouse, 940 Boonville Avenue, Springfield, Missouri.

Send comments to the Honorable David L. Coonrod, Presiding Commissioner, Greene County Commissioners, County Courthouse, 940 Boonville Avenue, Springfield, Missouri 65802.
