Communities may permit development in these areas even though no Federal assistance, such as flood insurance, is available, provided that the development meets NFIP requirements. Verify whether your property is located within a CBRA prior to obtaining a Building Permit. If you own property near one of the above designated areas, check with the Floodplain Manager or a Planner to verify whether you property is affected. Removing your property from a CBRA requires approval by Congress.
You may submit a Flood Zone Inquiry form and we will determine whether your property is located within a CBRA. Maps are also available through http://www.fws.gov/habitatconservation/coastal_barrier.html .
