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. Comments were due by July 26, 2017.
