Mark your Calendar for Upcoming Charting Buffalo Community Meetings

 

Charting BuffaloThe Harris County Flood Control District (HCFCD) will hold its first community meeting this month to discuss the Charting Buffalo study. The first of four meetings, each meeting will educate the public on the study while discussing where the report is available for public review and feedback.

Charting Buffalo aims to integrate options for reducing flood risks and damages and the need for streambank stabilization. In addition, it includes opportunities for third parties to collaborate in creating community and environmental enhancements. The study focuses on 32 miles of Buffalo Bayou from the Barker Reservoir to the Houston Ship Channel Turning Basin and seven miles of lower White Oak Bayou from Loop 610 to the confluence with Buffalo Bayou in downtown Houston. 

Once public feedback has been taken into account, the Charting Buffalo study will result in a final report that will include many options and a recommended implementation strategy to reduce flood risks and damages, improve streambank stability and identify additional uses of greenspace created by the Harris County Flood Control District. 

The public review and feedback period for the Charting Buffalo report will begin on February 8 and continue through April 1, 2012.  For meeting information or to view the study, visit www.chartingbuffalo.org.
