According to FEMA's website, a Flood Insurance Rate Map is a flood map created by FEMA used by the National Flood Insurance Program for floodplain management, mitigation, and insurance purposes. The flood insurance rate maps generally show roads, landmarks, a community's base flood elevation, flood zones, and floodplain boundaries. As a property owner, you can use a Flood Insurance Rate Map to get a reliable indication of what flood zone you are in.
The preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Study released by FEMA on April 16, 2015, resulted in the update of Flood Insurance Rate Map Numbers 06001C0254H and 06001C0258H that increased the base flood elevation for areas within San Leandro that front on San Francisco Bay. As a result, properties not previously within Zone AE will be within the flood zone upon the adoption of the study and maps.
The construction of a levee near the intersection of Neptune Drive and Marina Boulevard to be funded by the proposed Neptune Drive Flood Protection Assessment District is a result of updates made to the maps referenced above. You may download the maps at the links provided below. Please note that the flood insurance rate maps are large in file size and may take a while to download.
