What is a flood zone?
Each parcel within the United States has a flood zone designation as determined by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). A parcel's flood zone designation predicts the likelihood of the parcel enduring flood damage over 100 to 500 year periods. The Planning Division can provide flood zone information to interested property owners. For more information, you can contact the National Flood Insurance Program at (800) 638-6620.
