Proactive LOMCs for Cost Reduction

When new studies are in progress FEMA should utilize the topographic data to make definitive determinations on properties en masse in advance of the map effective date. This will decrease the number of potential LOMA applications received in response to the new FIRMs, reducing the cost of LOMC processing.

This is beneficial for the public because they will have a property specific determination (regardless of scale limitations on the FIRM) and beneficial to FEMA because the cost of LOMCs is greatly reduced.
