|HERNANDO COUNTY, FLORIDA|
Flood Risk Protest and Appeal
Flood Risk Protest / Appeal
The protest and appeal period formally begins on the date of the publication of the second Base Flood Elevation Notice in the local press. This date has not been determined yet.
All appeals and protests will be sent to Hernando County government to initially review if the technical data submitted by the applicant will support the request. After that determination, they will be forwarded onto FEMA for final review and a decision. If necessary, additional supporting data will be requested.
Following the review of all submitted data, FEMA will send a letter to Hernando County government explaining the resolution of all of the appeals or protests. The decision to deny or approve the request will then be forwarded back to the applicant. Approved requests will become effective the day after the maps are formally adopted, which is anticipated to occur sometime within the next two years.
