The Town of Fairview is a member of the National Flood Insurance Program.

This means that anyone in Fairview can purchase low cost flood insurance from FEMA, regardless if your home is located in the flood plain.

  • Under no circumstances should fill be hauled into the 100 year flood plain.
  • No new structures should be built or installed within the 100 year flood plain.
  • All existing structures within the 100 year flood plain should be insured for flood damage.
  • Insurance companies or mortgage lenders may require flood insurance, even if your home is not in the flood plain. It’s up to you to provide documentation from FEMA that your home or structure has been removed from the flood plain if they ask. Please contact the engineering department if you need assistance.
  • All development within the 100 year flood plain must be permitted by the engineering department.
  • Flooding in and around creeks increase over time due to upstream development and convergence with other streams. For example, Sloan Creek floods at the east end due to Wilson Creek flooding from upstream development in McKinney.
  • New flood maps released in 2009 took some homes out of the 100 year flood plain and put others within the flood plain. Please contact the engineering department to determine if your home has changed.
