Flood Elevation Request Procedures

The Community Development Department is responsible for FEMA coordination within the City of Alamogordo. The FEMA Coordinator will review requests and determine the flood elevation. There is a 3 business day turnaround time for all FEMA requests received by the Community Development Department. FEMA requests may be made in several ways:

In-Person Requests

All requests for flood map information must eventually be in writing on the Flood Map Information Form (PDF). Applicants applying in person will use the form for Flood Map Information which is also available at the Community Development Department counter. The form will not be accepted until all required information is provided.

Telephone Requests

Telephone requests may be made to the Community Development Secretary at 575-439-4208, who will have the proper form to take the required information. Applicants who cannot provide all of the information necessary to fill out the Flood Map Information form will be advised to call back once they have obtained the information.

Faxed Requests

Faxed requests may be made using the Flood Map Information form and sending them:
Attention: Community Development Department - FEMA Coordinator at 575-439-4343. 

If a faxed request does not have all of the proper information, the Community Development Secretary will either fax the request back with further instructions or call the applicant directly. Flood information will not be faxed to the applicant since part of the information is in a bound pamphlet.

Additional Information

Note: Requests involving proposed structures must contain a site plan that shows the structure and the distances from the property lines to the structure (setbacks).
