After Hurricane Harvey, the City of League City hired several engineering firms to conduct six drainage studies in various different neighborhoods and subdivisions throughout the City. The drainage studies are completed and final reports provide an analysis of the flooding and drainage issues in each neighborhood along with suggested solutions to mitigate future flooding. In addition, a regional solution is needed to lower the water surface elevation along Clear Creek and Dickinson Bayou during flooding events.
League City residents are invited to a Town Hall Meeting ting on Thursday, November 8, at 6 p.m. at the Johnnie Arolfo Civic Center to learn more about the City's next steps when it comes to addressing drainage and flooding issues within the City.
City administrators will address various topics
· What drainage/flooding problem areas can be mitigated?
· What is the total cost?
· How can the City fund or seek funding for flood mitigation projects?
· How will the City prioritize flood mitigation projects?
· What projects are already underway?
· How can the City be involved in a regional solution to eliminate elevated water levels along Clear Creek and Dickinson Bayou during extreme weather?
· How will new and proposed design standards, FEMA maps, and flood insurance rate maps impact existing and new developments in League City?
