Floodplain

The Park County "Floodplain Program" is actually the Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), implemented at the local level. Although the Flood Program starts as a federal program, FEMA has charged the local jurisdictions (cities and counties) with adopting regulations and administering the program at the local level. Participation in the NFIP program allows Park County residents to purchase subsidized flood insurance, borrow money from an FDI backed lender for purchasing property in the floodplain, and utilize a number of other benefits important to a community so dependent on its waterways.

If you are interested as to whether or not your property may be in the floodplain or if you plan on doing any work in the floodplain or along a waterway, please contact the Park County Planning Department staff.
