In 2015, residents of Valley Center were informed about changes being made by FEMA to the Sedgwick County floodplain maps, also known as the Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM). Residents were told that a Letter of Final Determination (LFD) would be mailed to them in February 2016. This date has been moved to late June/early July 2016. The LFD will contain final Base Flood Elevations (BFE) and the date the new FIRM will go into effect, which will be six months after the LFD release date. You may view the proposed FIRM on the following website: https://gismaps.sedgwickcounty.org/mabcd/fema/ For any further questions, please contact the Valley Center Community Development Department at 316-755-7310.
