The Town of York wants to ensure all our citizens and visitors are fully aware of the hazards related to flooding

Preliminary Flood Maps


As a coastal community we do experience flooding given the right set of circumstances.  It’s important to know that street flooding from pooling water is also common in our area, and we want everyone to be aware of the risks of all types of floods and know what action to take in the event of a flood.

Before any construction or other development begins within any areas of special flood hazard areas, a Flood Hazard Development Permit shall be obtained from the Code Enforcement Officer. This permit shall be in addition to any other permits, which may be required pursuant to the
codes and ordinances of the Town.
