Information About New Flood Maps and Flood Ordinance Changes


Brunswick County is considering adopting new flood maps and amending the County’s Flood Damage Prevention Ordinance, to participate in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

FEMA regularly updates Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) using studies to improve the maps and ensure their accuracy. The last maps FEMA approved for our area were adopted in 2006; since then, FEMA has worked to study and improve these maps. Now that FEMA has approved updated maps, Brunswick County can adopt them and continue to participate in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

To view the current effective maps or the preliminary maps on the State’s website, visit the Flood Risk Information System (FRIS) – Flood Maps, which will automatically show the current effective maps. To view the preliminary maps, in the top right corner of the page, click on “Effective” and change to “Preliminary.” This will allow the viewer to see the maps being adopted on August 28, 2018.

Brunswick County will be scheduling a public hearing about these changes, and a public informational workshop will be held on July 10, 2018 at 6 p.m. in the County Commissioners Chambers, at 30 Government Center Drive in Bolivia, NC.

Board of Elections Special Meeting: One-Stop


The Brunswick County Board of Elections will hold a public meeting (special session) by teleconference on Monday, August 22, 2016 at 1:00 p.m. Interested members of the public may listen to the meeting by appearing at the Board of Elections Office.  For additional information regarding this meeting, please contact Sara Knotts at or 910-253-2620.

NOTE: This special meeting is called to adjust the one-stop schedule that was approved on Monday, August 15.  A scheduling conflict with the Leland Cultural Arts Center has resulted in the facility not being available to us during the first week of early voting.  The Board will consider an amended schedule to provide early voting at Leland Town Hall during the first week instead.  No other changes are under consideration and there are no further agenda items.  See the proposed schedule below.
