Preliminary Flood Maps

Please be advised that the Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has published preliminary revised Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) and a Flood Insurance Study (FIS) report for Boxford. The FIRM and FIS documents are often used to determine what regulations may apply to a particular piece of property, whether the property is in a flood hazard area, and whether flood insurance is required.

Please see the FIRMs and FIS documents linked below.

An appeal period relating to the preliminary FIRM and FIS documents will expire on or about October 30, 2023. Persons wishing to appeal the preliminary FIRM or FIS documents should contact Ross Povenmire ( with scientific or technical data indicating that the preliminary FIRM or FIS documents are incorrect.
