Residents will have a chance to learn more about the Guadalupe Regional Flood Planning Group’s new flood risk reduction plan during an upcoming public meeting.
The Guadalupe RFPG will host the meeting Sept. 21 at 4:30 p.m. at the University of Houston-Victoria Northwest Campus Multipurpose Room, 1604 E. Airline Road. Attendees will be able to view the plan, ask questions and provide feedback.
“Public input is extremely important to the success of this first-ever ‘bottom-up’ planning effort,” said Guadalupe RFPG Chairman Douglas R. Miller in a news release. “It is important that this plan captures projects and strategies to address (residents’) very real flood risks and concerns so they can be considered for potential funding.”
This event is not hosted by the City, but City staff will attend to represent local interests.
Residents can also view the plan and provide feedback at www.guadaluperfpg.org or at the Victoria Public Library, 302 N. Main St. Comments can also be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to Guadalupe Blanco River Authority, ATTN: Lauren Willis; 933 E. Court St.; Seguin, TX 78155. Comments must be received by Oct. 7.
