LINCOLN COUNTY BROWNFIELDS ASSESSMENT PROGRAM

The LCRPC is preparing an inventory of potential Brownfields sites in Lincoln County by reviewing state and local databases, talking with local officials and property owners, and conducting a windshield survey of the County for the purposes of distributing grant money to towns in the county. 

The Environmental Protection Agency defines a brownfield property as: "a real property, the expansion, redevelopment, or reuse of which may be complicated by the presence or potential presence of a hazardous substance, pollutant, or contaminant.”

FLOOD INSURANCE RATE MAPS (FIRMs) NOW UP FOR LINCOLN COUNTY!

A FIRM is a map created by the National Flood Insurance Program for floodplain management and insurance purposes. The digital FIRMS are in Google Earth format and are located here on our website. Each town download includes the Special Flood Hazard layer and the parcel layer which includes the Map Lot Number for identification purposes. 

The FIRMs here specifically show the Special Flood Hazard Layer as well as base flood elevations, flood zone category, and boundaries.
