Do you have questions about whether or not you need flood insurance? Is your property at risk for flooding? Pasco County Development Services will be taking virtual citizen comments about the new, preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) from September 17, 2018 – October 1, 2018. Interact with specialists regarding your questions and comments on flood risk, flood insurance, the appeal process and the mapping methods used to make the new maps.
Approximately 28,000 parcels in Pasco’s coastal communities will see some change in base flood elevation or flood zone. Residents and property owners are encouraged to participate.
The new Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Flood Insurance Rate Maps are based on revised coastal flood modeling and used to determine a property’s flood risk and flood insurance requirements.
