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.

Roads in Brunswick County

In North Carolina, counties do not own or maintain roads.

The North Carolina Department of Transportation owns and maintains many of the roads in Brunswick County; others are maintained by a municipality, or are privately-owned and -maintained. The county also does not control stormwater conveyance along North Carolina Department of Transportation roadways.

  • To determine if a road is a State/NCDOT road, go to GIS Online and click the road. If there is a number next to “State Road Number” in the box that pops up, it is a State road. If the area next to “State Road Number” is blank, it is not a State road. Concerns with State roads can be reported to NCDOT.
  • If the road is located inside municipal limits and you think the road might be a municipal (city) street, contact that municipality for confirmation or to report a concern.
  • If the road is not a State road and is not a municipal road, or is outside municipal limits, then it is privately-owned. This could mean it is owned by a person, but several people, or by an organization like an HOA or POA. The owner or owners of privately-owned roads are responsible for their maintenance and upkeep.

Street maps are available for purchase in the Brunswick County GIS office.

A street name search is available online. Note: this search does not show where the street or road is on a map, or who owns it. It merely shows existing street names, for use when naming a street.
