FEMA Flood Maps
To find out if your property is in the Special Flood Hazard Area, visit FloodSmart.gov, and enter your address in the official site of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).
If your property has been identified to be in the Special Flood Hazard Area by FEMA and you wish to determine the proper flood insurance premium rate or support the removal of your property from the FIRM through a request for a Letter of Map Amendment (LOMA), you may complete an Elevation Certificate through the NFIP.
Public Works Engineering has Elevation Certificates and Letter of Map Amendments (LOMA) that were processed through the NFIP or if it was required to be submitted as part of a building permit. You can confirm if your parcel has an Elevation Certificate and/or LOMA on file with the City. If you have an Elevation Certificate and/or LOMA and it is not in our database, please send a copy to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we may update our records. If you wish to obtain a copy of your parcels Elevation Certificate or LOMA, please send a request to email@example.com with valid proof (title report or property tax statement) with matching identification (Government ID or equivalent) that you are the owner of the parcel.
Property owners that are new to the Special Flood Hazard Area had been notified by the City and had the opportunity to meet with FEMA and City staff at an informational open house on March 15, 2016 at the Burlingame Main Library. Property owners had the opportunity to ask questions about engineering/mapping, flood insurance, and building code changes that may impact their property.
