High Tide and Flood Zone Maps

High Tide Map

At the Jan 11th Civic meeting, City Staff presented this image showing tidal impact levels in our neighborhood.  The numbers correspond to high tide numbers.  For reference, the northeaster of Nov 2009 was recorded at 7.9 feet.

 Check out the information about an Elevation Certificate.  City staff recommended getting one of these if you’d like to possibly reduce your flood insurance costs.  You actual floor elevation is identified by this certificate and based on the height, you may qualify for a lower premium.  Check with your insurance company before getting the certificate.

Support if City maps don’t work.
