BBA list of flood reducing projects/Bond meeting

Below is a list, as written at the last BBA meeting. The list is intentionally left “rough” to allow those that were not able to attend to see them as suggested by attendees. Please review and add to list or comment by replying to this email. At the next BBA meeting (Monday July 16th) we will refine and prioritize list. The goal is to be able to present strong recommendations to the Harris County Commissioner’s Court and HCFCD by the middle of August. We acknowledge that some of the items on the list are already being explored by various governmental entities, but have yet to come to fruition.

Also tomorrow night’s “Bond” meeting is NOT a Town Hall style meeting, there seems to be some confusion. It is an “Open House” style event. Question and suggestion opportunities will be limited to individual HCFCD staff and Harris County officials who will spread out to various tables after the 6:00 and 7:00pm(repeat) presentation. Even though you may not get a chance to fully express your thoughts, please attend to show the desire of those in the Brays Watershed for flood risk reducing projects… numbers do matter! You will be asked to submit any “recommendations” via internet… helps HCFCD keep accurate accounting of citizens desires.

I look forward to hearing from you and will share all responses with everyone. You may also go to our page on FB page… Brays Bayou Association – Houston https://www.facebook.com/groups/496827817377666/?ref=bookmarks
