The Community Development Director maintains floodplain records for the City.  Developers are required to determine how high water will rise and how much water will flow in a 100-year storm (This event has a one percent chance of occurrence in any given year.)  The area of land that would be covered by floodwaters in the 100-year storm is designated as floodplain.  Certain areas along Turtle Creek fall within the designated 100-year floodplain.  There are many restrictions on new development within designated floodplains.  For more information about the allowable uses of designated floodplain areas, please refer to the University Park Floodplain Management Ordinance.

Flood Plain Management Ordinance


The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) prepares the Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRM) that are used by insurance agents to determine the cost of flood insurance.  The City of University Park participates in the Flood Insurance Program (FIP) and works with FEMA to ensure that the latest floodplain information is available on those maps.  When floodplain information is updated, the City acts as the repository for local floodplain information until the updated FEMA maps are reissued.
 

To determine whether a property within University Park lies in a floodplain, refer to the Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM), or contact the Chief Planning Official at 214-987-5411.
