November 14, 2018, Little Cypress Creek Frontier Program Community Meeting

The Harris County Flood Control District will host a community meeting on:

Wednesday, November 14, 2018, from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.
(Presentation to begin at 6:15 p.m. with an open house to follow)
Richard & Meg Weekley Community Center
8440 Greenhouse Road, Cypress, Texas 77433

The purpose of this meeting is to inform residents about the status of the Little Cypress Creek Frontier Program, share project information and receive comments. The Little Cypress Creek Frontier Program focuses on the 52-square-mile Little Cypress Creek watershed in northwest Harris County. This area, which is experiencing rapid development with construction of the Grand Parkway, lacks sufficient natural drainage to accommodate expected growth. By collaborating with landowners and developers, the program works to identify a large-scale, mutually beneficial plan for drainage that cost-effectively maximizes stormwater mitigation, flood damage reduction and water quality, as well as opportunities for public recreational amenities and open space.

Little Cypress Creek Frontier Program projects will be partially funded with bonds approved by Harris County voters on August 25, 2018. Community engagement is an important ingredient of the Bond Program, and we invite you to take part in that process.
