Regional Drainage Improvement Program Website, Task Force Meeting Apr. 11

Through the first quarter of the year, the several tasks laid out in Work Order #1 of our Regional Drainage Improvement Program are all progressing right on schedule.  In their latest monthly update the engineering team presented the current status of each, emphasizing much of their recent focus has been on building partnerships and pursuing external funding sources.  They’re also putting the finishing touches on recommended refinements to our Flood Damage Prevention Ordinance, which will soon be ready to go to the Building and Standards Commission.

On the public engagement front, the project website is now live at bellairedrainageimprovementprogram.org, and will be updated periodically with new information and developments.

The consultants have also scheduled their first meeting with our Flood Hazard Mitigation Task Force for next Tuesday, April 11, at 6:00 p.m. in the Civic Center.  Expect some technical discussion and opportunities for Task Force members and the public to provide feedback on progress to date and next steps.

Questions and comments on the Regional Drainage Improvement Program are always welcome, by e-mail to drainage@bellairetx.gov.
