The Development Services Department of the City of Rio Rancho hereby gives notice of the City’s intent to revise the flood hazard information, generally located between Southern Blvd. and Westside Blvd., West of Unser Blvd. The flood hazard revisions are being proposed as part of Conditional Letter of Map Revision (CLOMR) Case No.21-06-3356R for proposed projects on the Rainbow Tributary. Los Diamantes, LLC is proposing to construct a detention Pond on the Rainbow Tributary as part of Los Diamantes Subdivision to prevent flooding and to prevent lateral migration of the Rainbow Tributary in the new residential subdivision.
Once the project has been completed, a Letter of Map Revision (LOMR) request should be submitted that will, in part, revise the following flood hazards along the Rainbow Tributary.
Base Flood Elevations (BFEs) will decrease along the Rainbow Tributary.
The SFHA will decrease along the Rainbow Tributary.
Maps and detailed analysis of the revision can be reviewed at the Development Services Department of the City of Rio Rancho at 3200 Civic Center Circle NE, Rio Rancho, NM 87144.
