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.

2018 Primary Election

Here is your quick guide to the May 8, 2018 Primary Election!

What is a Primary?

In even-numbered years a primary election is held to nominate a candidate to represent a political party in the general election held later in the same year. In 2018, North Carolina’s officially recognized political parties (the Democrats, the Republicans, and the Libertarians) will hold their primaries on Tuesday, May 8. Registered voters may vote only in the primary election of their declared party.

Unaffiliated Voters and North Carolina Primaries

Unaffiliated voters in North Carolina MAY vote in primary elections. Currently in North Carolina the Democrats, Republicans, and Libertarians open their respective primaries to unaffiliated voters. When unaffiliated voters present themselves to vote, in addition to stating their name and residential address, they will also state in which party’s primary they would like to participate. This choice is for that primary only and it will carry over to the second primary if a second primary is called. This choice does not change the voters’ registration status from unaffiliated.

What is on the ballot?

What is on your ballot will depend on your registered, or chosen, party and your jurisdictions (where you live).  For a diagram outlining the primary election contests, click here.
