The North Carolina Department of Public Safety has issued a revision of the local National Flood Insurance Program Base Flood Elevations and Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM). In short, this means we need to re-adopt our Flood Damage Prevention Ordinance.

The Board of Commissioners set a public hearing and approved the ordinance on September 18, 2017. The Ordinance and associated updated maps will go into effect on November 17, 2017.  The adopted Ordinance is available here.

On October 10, 2017, the North Carolina Department of Public Safety Floodplain Division confirmed that the adopted Ordinance has been approved by FEMA.

The resources on this page will remain until the Ordinance goes into effect.
