Effective Date for New Flood Maps Delayed

 

As reported earlier, new draft flood maps for Carteret County are very favorable for many Emerald Isle property owners, with many properties removed from the more restrictive and higher premium VE zones.  Due, in part, to concerns from other communities in Carteret County that are negatively impacted by the new maps and the expected lengthy appeals process, the new maps are not likely to be effective until sometime in 2019.  If you have questions about how your property is impacted, please contact Town Planner Josh Edmondson at 252-354-3338 or jedmondson@emeraldisle-nc.org .
