Expand Criteria for LOMA determinations by LIDAR

There have been a few pilot projects to issue mass LOMA or mass revalidations at a countywide scale by applying LIDAR data instead of the traditional MT-1 process . As LIDAR data becomes more accessible, implementing a standard process in which allows determinations on a defined area (e.g. 5 acres/50 lots) will save time and money for FEMAs LOMC program. By allowing a smaller area to be removed by this process, outreach efforts can be focused toward a group of affected property owners. This may result in a better understanding and acceptance of determinations by LIDAR as equivalent to traditional determinations.
