Upcoming Events

BRAYS BAYOU WATERSHED MEETING
Monday, July 9th - 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Pershing Middle School
3838 Blue Bonnet Blvd.
Houston, TX 77025

Everyone we all need to show up and pack the auditorium that night to impress upon HCFCD how everyone feels about the need for more flood mitigation in all of our Bray Watershed areas. Without full participation they will not listen as closely and we do need more detention capacity from the upcoming bond election at the end of August. If we can we need to ask for and demand additional detention capacity via some of the upstream golf courses [Westwood, Braeburn] as well as maybe Ruffino Hills as well. Please attend and loudly demand more mitigation projects for Bray Bayou!

Officials with the Harris County Flood Control District will hold public meetings in each of the county’s 23 watersheds. The purpose of each meeting is to describe projects that could be candidates for funding in the 2018 bond program and to solicit residents’ input on other flooding issues that should be addressed.

These meetings have been declared to be special meetings of Harris County Commissioners Court so that members of Commissioners Court may attend and participate. Brief opening remarks will begin promptly at 6 p.m. but the public is encouraged to come anytime between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. for the Open House portion of the meeting and to provide input to elected officials and the Flood Control District.

Should the venue reach maximum capacity, the opening remarks would occur twice – at 6 p.m. and at 7 p.m. The opening remarks will also be live-streamed on the HCFCD Facebook page and will be posted to http://hcfcd.org/bondprogram following the meeting.

Butterflies and bees are most welcome here.

 

We also welcome our new sponsor, Jaron Hall with Jaron Hall Properties. Thank you for the lovely new sign!
