Flood Map Modernization Program
Flood Maps Overview
Osceola County has undertaken a multi-year project to re-examine flood zones and develop detailed, digital flood hazard maps. The new maps reflect current flood risks, replacing maps that are over 10 years old. The current effective FEMA Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) for Osceola County is dated June 6, 2001.
As a result of this project, property owners throughout Osceola County will have up-to-date, reliable, Internet-accessible information about their flood risk - on a property-by-property basis. As a stakeholder in Osceola County's future, you should be aware of how the maps are changing and why - and how the changes will affect residents and business owners alike.

Public Meetings and Open Houses
The development and implementation of new FEMA Digital Flood Insurance Rate Maps (DFIRMs) is a formal process with official Government Staff and General Public review process. The adoption of the new FEMA DFIRMs takes place when all of the appeals and protests have been resolved. The length of this resolution process is dependent on the number of cases and the duration and number of judicial appeals that are filed.
