E911 Rural Addressing
The Planning & Zoning Department is responsible for determining new E911 addresses for those properties in unincorporated areas of Harrison County. These addresses are based upon an “addressing grid” developed for the entire county when the Emergency 911 Addressing went into effect. You must have an address assigned to receive telephone and other services.
Flood Plain Districts
The Planning & Zoning Department has flood plain maps for the entire county. These maps are published by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) National Flood Insurance Program and are used to rate property in flood prone areas. This information is used to assess a property’s value and to assist in properly zoning the area. These maps area available for reference only and are not for distribution.
Certain areas in Harrison County have been zoned as Floodplain Districts (F-1). The F-1 district is designed and intended to be applied by the County to properties which lie within areas where special regulations are necessary in order to minimize the danger to life and property which results from flood waters. These regulations are further intended to protect the floodplain from encroachments or developments which would obstruct, contain, or divert the passage of flood waters.
