Changes to FEMA Flood Maps

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has completed a multi-year assessment of the County's coastal flood risk and updated flood maps.

Effective October 7, 2021, permits issued by the County will need to meet the new flood zone and Base Flood Elevation (BFE) requirements (even if the application was received before October 7).

To see how the flood risk may have changed for a property or area, visit Hillsborough County's Flood Zone Comparison Viewer. Please view our fact sheet for additional information.

To our customers affected by the closing of Olympus Pools:
The Board of County Commissioners has passed a resolution waiving permit transfer fees for any affected customers. Customers who have already transferred their permit will be eligible for a refund of the transfer fee. For additional information, please contact
