Four Versions of the Model Ordinance – FEMA categorizes municipalities into levels A, B, C, and D based on the data provided on the FIRM.  Municipalities should use the model ordinance corresponding to their level, as determined by the RAMPP Region III Ordinance Level Worksheet.

FEMA Region III Ordinance Review Checklist – This checklist has been created by FEMA to be used to determine compliance with the agency’s requirements.  Municipalities can use it to be sure they have provided the required ordinance sections (the model ordinance is keyed to the FEMA checklist to make it easier to determine compliance). 

Additional Information From FEMA – The Montgomery Fact Sheet and the Floodplain Management Ordinance Standard Operating Procedures and Guidance are FEMA documents that may be helpful during this process.
