Flood Protection Study Meeting April 8

Apr 6, 2015

A public meeting related to a regional flood protection plan study will be held at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, April 8. The meeting will be at the Georgetown Municipal Complex, 300-1 Industrial Avenue.

The City of Georgetown and the Texas Water Development Board are holding the meeting to gather input from the public on flooding issues in the Georgetown city limits or areas near city limits. Property owners who are aware of known flooding issues are encouraged to provide that information to officials at the meeting.

Members of the Georgetown City Council and the Georgetown Transportation Advisory Board have been invited to attend the meeting, but no action will be taken at the meeting. The purpose is to listen to public input. Information about flooding issues will be used in the flood protection plan study.

Results of the study may affect flood plain maps and decisions about future capital improvement projects. The flood study is not related to recent property buyouts along Smith Branch in southeast Georgetown.

For additional information, contact Wesley Wright, systems engineering director for the City of Georgetown at (512) 931-7672 or wesley.wright@georgetown.org.
