The Niceville Public Library maintains a rack specifically for documents related to flood insurance, flood protection, and floodplain management as a service to our citizens. Also included are Niceville's Flood Insurance Maps, Floodway Map, and a guidebook explaining their use. Feel free to visit this display on your next visit to the Library. If there are any additional documents you would like to see as part of this display, contact Bruce Price (850) 729-4064.
Flood Insurance Rate Map Determinations:
The City of Niceville is a participant in the regular program of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and its Community Rating System. The city provides map determinations and Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM) data to inquirers and provides information on the flood insurance purchase requirement as a service to its citizens. City Staff assists citizens by reading the FIRM in response to telephone calls; helping a person who walks in to read the FIRM; and by completing forms and providing other pertinent information. Niceville's Community Number is 120338, the date of our current FIRM index is December 6, 2002, and the National Geodetic Vertical Datum of 1929 is the elevation datum used on our FIRM. The FIRM is available for review at the Building Department, City Hall Administration, and the Library. We also provide the following information: Whether the property is located in a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA), what the FIRM zone designation is, the base flood elevation, and the FIRM panel number and suffix. Also, elevation and floodproofing certificates dating back to October, 1992, are available for review at the Building Department. Please contact us at 729-4008 for assistance in map determinations.
