An open house meeting to solicit public input on flooding issues and flood-prone areas in Georgetown is Wednesday, July 26. The open house by the City of Georgetown, in partnership with the Texas Water Development Board, is at 6 p.m. at the Georgetown Municipal Complex, 300-1 Industrial Avenue, Georgetown, Texas, 78626. This is the third of three public meetings for public input on flooding issues in Georgetown.
The purpose of the meeting is to solicit comments and information from the public with respect to flood-prone areas and flooding issues as part of a regional flood protection planning study. The goal of the study is to identify areas of flooding and develop mitigation strategies such as drainage maintenance and potential future drainage projects.
At the meeting, results of floodplain mapping will be available showing where flood-prone areas are located, including homes that are within the floodplain. Representatives from the City of Georgetown and the Texas Water Development Board will be at the open house to provide information and answer questions.
The meeting will be an open house in a come-and-go format. No formal presentation will be made.
