The Planning and Zoning 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 Planning and Zoning Department.
All requests for flood map information must eventually be in writing on the Flood Map Information Request Form (PDF). Applicants applying in person will use the form for Flood Map Information which is also available at the Planning and Zoning Department counter. The form will not be accepted until all required information is provided.
If a faxed request does not have all of the proper information, the Planning and Zoning Administrative Assistant 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.
Complete the online form for Flood Elevation Requests. Please complete all the required information. Turnaround time is expected to be at least three business days. Please call the Planning and Zoning department with any additional questions 575-439-4220.
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).
