Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM) Final Maps to take effect on June 6, 2018
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) conducted an open house on May 5, 2016 for the public to review and meet with representatives concerning the flood maps. This was the first of many steps in a process to adopt new maps that will supersede the current effective maps. On December 6, 2017, FEMA issued a Letter of Final Determination that detailed that the flood information for Palm Coast is final. The Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM) and Flood Insurance Study (FIS) will take effect on June 6, 2018. To determine if these changes will affect your property's floodplain designation, the following links will take you to the final map panels for viewing and downloading.
The changes may affect existing Flood Insurance Policyholders and property owners considering the purchase of flood insurance. The City of Palm Coast recommends that all citizens secure flood insurance to ensure complete coverage of their home. Policyholders should work with their insurance agents to resolve any questions or concerns that they have related to flood insurance, or contact FEMA Floodsmart at 1-888-379-9531.
