FEMA Flood Information
The Town of Fairfax administers the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and the Community Rating System (CRS) Program for the areas within the Town. In 2017, Fairfax completed the documentation for participation in CRS which resulted in a reduction in flood insurance rates for residents.
Our Building Official (Mark Lockaby) can provide specific information regarding the FEMA mapping of the Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHA) at our Public Permit Counter, located at 142 Bolinas Road, or via phone at 415-458-2370. The Building Official is available to determine if your property is in a Special Flood Hazard Area and answer questions about flood maps, flood zones, base flood elevations (BFE), flood protection, and flood insurance. Staff is also available to perform site visits and provide information on flood protection and reducing flood risk.
