Floodplain Property Check

Property Information System

You can check to see if your property, or property you are considering purchasing, is located in the special flood hazard area by visiting our Property Information System and activating the Preliminary FEMA Zones 2014 layer on the map or by contacting the Community Development Department. Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs), at a scale of 1”=1,000’, are also on file in the Community Development Department. These services are offered free of charge to the general public, real estate and insurance firms and lending agencies.
