The City of Rio Rancho Engineering Division, in accordance with National Flood Insurance Program regulation 65.7(b)(1), hereby gives notice of the City’s intent to revise the flood hazard information, generally located between Villa Road and Black Arroyo Boulevard NW. The flood hazard revisions are being proposed as part of Conditional Letter of Map Revision (CLOMR) Case No. 21-06-3356R for a proposed project along Rainbow Tributary. LD Development LLC is proposing a regional detention pond along with roadway and storm drain improvements along Rainbow Tributary as part of the Los Diamantes project.

1. Base Flood Elevations (BFEs) will be established along Rainbow Tributary.
2. The SFHA will increase and decrease along Rainbow Tributary.

Maps and detailed analysis of the revision can be reviewed at the City of Rio Rancho Engineering Department at 3200 Civic Center Circle NE, Rio Rancho, NM 87144. Interested persons may call Mr. David Serrano at (505) 891-5059 for additional information.
