-- ORDINANCE/SECOND (FINAL) READING: An ordinance to adopt revised flood damage control standards. The City of North Myrtle Beach adopted its last flood ordinance, Article II. - Flood Damage Control, in 1983. Intermittent revisions have been incorporated in the years that followed. To remain compliant with the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), the state model ordinance must be adopted or updated with the recommended/required regulations with regard to the last Community Assistance Visit which occurred on July 11, 2019.
The revised ordinance will also be beneficial to the City’s standing with regard to the Community Rating System (CRS), which results in reduced flood insurance premiums for North Myrtle Beach property owners.
-- ORDINANCE/SECOND READING: An ordinance to adopt the revised Flood Insurance Study and Flood Insurance Rate Maps issued by FEMA and periodically updated, to take effect on December 16, 2021.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) maintains Flood Insurance Studies and Flood Insurance Rate Maps showing the official boundaries of Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHAs), the Base Flood Elevations, and the risk premium zones applicable to flood insurance rates. FEMA periodically updates these studies and maps to include better ground elevation data and reflect changes in ground elevations in the floodplain. The most recent past revision to FEMA’s Flood Insurance Rate Maps as they pertain to North Myrtle Beach occurred on August 23, 1999.
FEMA has updated its Flood Insurance Studies and Flood Insurance Rate Maps as they pertain to North Myrtle Beach and they will take effect on December 16, 2021. To remain compliant with the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), the City must adopt the most recent revisions to FEMA’s flood study and maps
