Hi Julie, is a website where after you click "I Agree", you draw a box around North Lawrence, then click on Planning over on the right side of the map and select Flood Hazard Area by putting a check in the box. Then select Aerial Photography and check the box by Lawrence 2006. Then click refresh map. You will then see lots of red which indicates flood plains. You can continue to zoom in to see the house you are searching for. Feel free to visit to set up email alerts for any North Lawrence listings that hit your price range.

Thanks and "Don't keep me a secret--I'm never too busy for your referrals!"

They should have told you or should tell you. That is one of those things that we are in.

Call the city planning division at 785-832-3150. If it was in the county, you would contact Douglas County.

Good luck. If you have any questions give me a call at 785-766-1234. Thanks, Bob

You can search the FEMA maps. Even better - call the local state house
and ask. The operator will direct you to the right person who can answer
your question reliably.
