The purpose of this meeting will be to share information about the Cedar Bayou Flood Risk Reduction Study, gather feedback about flooding concerns in the Cedar Bayou watershed, as well as inform residents about the Flood Control District’s study process. Please note that the meeting location is located near the Cedar Bayou watershed (the geographical region that drains to Cedar Bayou); however, the community center was the best location for this meeting based on size of space needed.
