FIRM Revision Project - 2021 Update

The Town of Amherst has hired AECOM to revise Amherst's Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM). The goal of this project is to produce and officially certify with FEMA a greatly improved FIRM, providing property owners with a more fair representation of flood probability. 

The mapping has now been completed and the town has received copies of the Preliminary maps for review and comment.  This multi-year effort is now being made available for public scrutiny.

Resources below include the Press Release, Flood Insurance Study, and Preliminary maps which are accessible by clicking on the appropriate map tile:
