FEMA Updating Flood Maps

Flood Map

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is updating flood maps for our area and is seeking public comment on preliminary findings. These proposed maps, also known as the Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) database, may change development regulations and flood insurance rates for affected properties.

The following is a link to FEMA’s draft/provisional flood maps for Douglas, Sarpy, and Cass Counties: 

Here is a link to an unofficial map developed by the City of Papillion to help provide this information in greater detail and allow comparison with current flood map information (click on “Layers” in the upper left side of the screen to overlay current floodplain information): 

Those with properties along waterways in Papillion, especially the West Papillion Creek, are encouraged to review this map. If property owners have additional engineering or survey data that may impact this map, they can provide it to Tiffany Coleman by email at General comments or questions about this project should be directed to FEMA's project officer, Rick Nusz at or 816-283-7907.

This process is currently in a preliminary comment period with a primary comment period to come. Stay tuned as future phases of the process will include additional public outreach and more formal appeal options.
