Using the newly acquired topography and detailed survey information of the Pack Creek floodplain area, the proposed revision to update the FEMA Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) information has been submitted to FEMA with the petition that a Letter of Map Revision (LOMR) be granted to Grand County. We are using this information as best information available until FEMA officially accepts and publishes the maps. At that time, we will run "Public Notices" and will be notifying the property owners affected by the new maps.
This page is currently under construction. We will update this site as updated information becomes available and will also include FEMA links and documents to help answer some of your floodplain-related questions. For general floodplain questions or property-specific questions, contact our office at 435-259-4134.

A Postconstruction Elevation Certificate is required prior to issuing the Certificate of Occupancy.
