Coastal Floodplain AE vs Shaded X
Hello All, I have been busy and have not visited in a while. I have a question so here I am hoping for experts to add something.
Coastal Floodplain, Shaded X and AE. Earlier guidance from the powers that be was to hold the mapped line but now there is new guidance stating to hold the contour even if it results in the AE completely overlapping the Shaded X.
In the map below the VE is red, the AE is orange, the Shaded X is blue and the X is not colorful. The AE to the south has a BFE of 15. The road just north of the AE15 has a low point of elevation 14. The big lobe of Shaded X to the north matches the 15′ contour.
If I were to file for a LOMA or an Out as Shown LOMA for any property in the blue, I would expect to get it. However, I am being told by the County Floodplain Manager that the State Guidance is to map the AE to the contour which will mean that several homes located a significant distance from the mapped floodplain will be in the floodplain.
Is anybody seeing the same guidance? It feels like when someone has a subdivision plan in hand but then sells different lots each defined by deed.
