Flood Insurance Rate Map Zone Information

As a public service, the City of Montpelier will provide you with the following information upon request:
  • Whether a property is in or out of the Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA) as shown on the current Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) of the City.
  • Additional flood insurance data for a site, such as the FIRM zone and the base flood elevation or depth, if shown on the FIRM,
  • We have a handout on the flood insurance purchase requirement that can help people who need a mortgage or loan for a property in the SFHA.
  • We have copies of completed FEMA Elevation Certificates for buildings built in the floodplain since 1991.
  • We have informational brochures and pamphlets available on flood safety, flood insurance, property protection measures and more.
If you would like to make an inquiry, please tell us the street address of your property. We are open 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m, Monday through Friday. Call us at 802-223-9506 or drop by the Department of Planning and Community Development in City Hall. There is no charge for this service.
