With levee project completion, an accompanying change in flood risk takes place. The change is made official. A change in designation can be accomplished through a Letter of Map Revision (LOMR) or the issuance of a new, updated flood map. The outreach steps are essentially the same but the timeline for a LOMR is more compressed than for issuance of new maps.
OUTREACH TIMELINE (LOMR)

2-3 Months Prior to Project Completion
1-2 Months Prior to Project Completion
2-3 Months Prior to LOMR issuance
1 Month Prior
to LOMR issuance
1-2 Months Post LOMR issuance
NOTE: A similar timeline applies for outreach around release of new preliminary flood hazard maps.
