FEMA has released preliminary flood insurance rate maps that may impact your flood insurance rates. You can see if your property is affected by using our new Flood Zone Information Tool or by going directly to FEMA's map service center.

The Floodplain Management section reviews building permit and development applications for compliance with adopted floodplain management regulations. 

On the following pages you can find information about the National Flood Insurance Program, Elevation Certificates, and Building in the Floodplain. If you have any questions not covered on these pages or the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), please feel free to contact the section via phone or email. 

Flood zones are not the same as evacuation zones. Find your evacuation level.
