The maps can affect a property owner’s ability to develop his or her land. Property owners who are concerned about the maps and live in an unincorporated area of the county can contact the county’s floodplain administrator, Tom Pope, at tpope@co.hays.tx.us or Hays County Development Services, PO Box 1006, San Marcos, TX, 78667.
