The interactive Land Development map on the website has been updated to reflect the floodplain as shown on the new Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs).  On the Live Maps tile you will need to activate the FEMA Flood layer.  You can search by owner, address or parcel (tax) identification number.

Many properties have been effectively removed from the high risk zone through Letters of Map Revision (LOMR), Letters of Map Amendment (LOMA), or Letters of Map Revision based on Fill (LOMR-F). Due to the cost of republishing a new Flood Insurance Rate Map, the Federal Emergency Management Agency will issue the change in a letter.
