FEMA has published new Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) for Tacoma that are effective as of March 7, 2017. In order for our community to remain eligible for National Flood Insurance, the City adopted these maps by reference into our local codes on February 21, 2017.
Check out Tacoma Maps for searchable FIRMS under the FEMA Layers tab at TacomaMaps.CityOfTacoma.org
Additional information describing the changes with the new maps can be found on Tacomapermits.org
under Notifications. This notice also has links to FEMA Region X website and all the FIRM maps.
