FEMA has issued modified flood hazard determinations affecting the Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) for the City of Beverly. The City approved a Zoning Amendment to the Floodplain Overlay District Ordinance and adopted the FIRM’s in June 2012/2014.  The FIRM’s impact the North Coastal Watershed (generally south of Route 128).  Click here for the text of the Zoning Amendment.  See below for the  FEMA Flood Maps.
